Do you love to sing?

Do you want to meet new people? 

Do you love to surround yourself with great music?

If so, Northwest Choral Society wants YOU to audition!  If you previously sang in a chorus -- high school, college or community group -- and are looking for a great activity in which to participate, you are invited to open auditions for the Northwest Choral Society.

NWCS will hold auditions on Tuesdays August 25 and September 1, starting at 6:30 pm.  Please call 224/585-9127, leave a message with your name and phone number, and someone will return the call to set a mutually convenient appointment time.  Bring a short prepared piece to sing.  Auditions will be held at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, 1095 Thacker Street (between Margaret St. and Jeannette St.), Des Plaines, IL.

As a member of a group like NWCS, adult singers can enjoy the personal growth and satisfaction that comes from active participation in a high-level, four-part performing arts organization.  You will appreciate NWCS’s intimate size and find the group friendly, supportive and fun.

NWCS meets on Tuesdays from Labor Day through the beginning of June in Des Plaines at St. Martin's from 7:30 - 10:00 pm.   Concerts are performed in venues in the greater Chicago area.  NWCS also presents outreach performances with smaller ensembles during the season.  

Further information regarding NWCS can be obtained online at www.nwchoralsociety.org.

Celebrating Northwest Choral Society's Golden Jubilee, they present the following concerts.

In Ecclesiis: Music for Choir & Brass

This glittering tapestry of music is a joyous celebration of Christmas that brings together choir and brass. It begins with Italian composer Giovanni Gabrieli's masterpiece, In Ecclesiis.  Finally we cross the pond to America to embrace Z. Randall Stroope's magnificent Hodie! This Day and Conrad Sousa's A Christmas Garland. The cries of "Noel, Noel" in the choir serve as the garland that weaves around many beloved holiday carols.  The concert will be held on Saturday, December 5, 2015 at 7:30 pm at Faith Lutheran Church, 431 S. Arlington Heights Road, Arlington Heights.
