The Chester River Chorale
Our mission is to provide opportunity, education, and inspiration for amateur singers to strive for artistic excellence. We entertain diverse audiences and enrich the cultural life of the community.
The Chester River Chorale is a vibrant all-volunteer, 95-voice community chorus in its 21st season of performing a wide variety of choral music in the Kent County community. Under the leadership of inspiring choral director and experienced professional singer Douglas D. Cox, the Chorale presents several concerts each holiday season and spring.
As a non-auditioned community choir, our members range from those with graduate-level music degrees and professional music experience to singers who do not read music. Members range in age from teenagers to octogenarians and come together through a love of singing, learning new music, and expanding their musical skills. If you love to sing, join us!
The Chorale's repertoire features classical masterworks and other sacred and contemporary music, including Broadway show tunes, spirituals, folk, pop and contemporary classical. The annual concert schedule includes A Chester River Holiday and a spring concert. For several years the Chamber Singers presented Independence Forever! to kick off the annual Chestertown Tea Party Festival. The Chorale has also performed with the National Music Festival Symphony Orchestra for seven seasons.
The Chorale is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
