Join the Elgin Master Chorale for a No-Stress Open Rehearsal on Tuesday, January 16. Come to experience the joy of singing with the area’s premier large chorus as we rehearse masterworks  like Vivaldi’s Gloria and Mozart’s Requiem. You’ll learn more about the Chorale and, if you decide to join us, you can sign up for a quick and easy audition later in January.

We have plenty of wonderful music ahead of us yet this season, and we'd love to have your voice among us! Go to Elgin Community College's Arts Center, Building H. There will be signs and greeters to guide you to our rehearsal. See you then!
