  • Background

    Link to Chorus America siteThe North Shore Choral Society, a 140 member community chorus, has been a prominent musical force serving the northern suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, and beyond for over 80 years, giving many hundreds of nonprofessional singers the opportunity to perform choral masterworks, both old and new.  The Society's repertoire ranges from the traditional to the avant-garde.  Few choruses, whether professional or amateur, have as distinguished a track record of presenting such a variety of music.  The chorus has performed at Ravinia with the Ravinia Festival Orchestra.  The Society features outstanding soloists, and some of the area's finest musicians play in the orchestras engaged for the performances.

    Here's the North Shore Choral Society singing Pleasure Tunes My Tongue, a William Billings tune.  This arrangement by composer Anne Heider was commissioned in celebration of the NSCS's 75th Anniversary, and recorded at our February 12, 2011 Gala concert.

    Here's a sample of the North Shore Choral Society ("For Unto Us a Child is Born" from Handel's Messiah, recorded live at our November 22, 2009 concert).

  • Leaders

    Except for the Music Director, Assistant Conductor, Accompanist, and General Manager, the leaders of the North Shore Choral Society are all volunteers.  A nominating committee identifies a slate of leaders willing to serve for the upcoming season.  The members of the Choral Society elect the Board of Directors at a business meeting held in the spring.
