Spokane Symphony Chorale

The Spokane Symphony Chorale was established in 1955 as volunteer singers and musicians performing choral music in this region.


In 1978 the Chorale became an official entity of the Spokane Symphony. As part of the Spokane Symphony, they have performed a wide range of musical works with the orchestra, including Dvorak’s Te Deum, Verdi’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah, Britten’s War Requiem, Mendelssohn’s Lobgesang, Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, Mozart’s C Minor Mass, Berlioz’s Damnation of Faust, and Rachmaninoff’s The Bells. In addition, they have performed in numerous operas, including Verdi’s Rigoletto, Puccini’s La boheme, and Bizet’s Carmen.

The Chorale enjoys a dedicated volunteer base of over 80 singers from all across the metro Spokane area; including many who commute from Coeur d’Alene, Davenport, Sandpoint, Pullman, and many other locations. These musicians participate in the over 100 hours of volunteer rehearsal and performance time required for each concert season. The professions of these volunteers are varied and include music educators, church choir directors, opera and theater performers, doctors, nurses, realtors, salesmen, homemakers, and many others who come together to share a love of singing.

Every spring, the Chorale presents a concert to benefit the Symphony through the Cantabile chapter of Spokane Symphony Associates. These concerts provide a dedicated avenue for this magnificent ensemble to reach choral music lovers in the region as well as monetarily support the Symphony.
