We are a non-auditioned vocal ensemble that provides solo opportunities to our members. We promote soloists from within so if you have the talent and desire to stand in front, there could be a place for you.

The South Holland Master Chorale welcomes you to our 2022-2023 season and our inaugural year under the new leadership of Philip Bauman. The Chorale is excited to usher in a new era of leadership and continue our spectacular traditions for GREAT choral performance. As has been the case for the past 23 years, our season, our singers, and our dedication to presenting the very best in choral literature have all remained at the same high level you have come to know, expect, and appreciate. The South Holland Master Chorale remains the Chicago Southland’s premier symphonic chorus, having performed many of the greatest masterpieces of classical choral and choral/orchestral literature.
The 100+ member South Holland chorus has performed throughout the Chicago south suburbs and Northwest Indiana, with orchestras including the Chicago Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, the LaPorte Symphony, the Illinois Philharmonic, and the Lake Shore Symphony Orchestra. The group also undertook a successful European concert tour to Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic in 2011.
