Join The Chorale

Wherever we sing whether it be in Europe, at Carnegie Hall, or at home in St. Louis, we bring a unique, blended sound and a voice dedicated to women’s music.

If you are a woman 18 years of age or older and would like to be part of our musical fellowship, we welcome you to audition.

The Chorale sings a varied repertoire from classical to contemporary music and strives for the highest artistic standards. Sight-reading and tonal memory exams are part of the audition process.
