The Choir joins the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and four soloists for two performances of the work last performed by this venerated choral institution in 1987.

Among the most active symphonic choruses in the United States, The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir is one of the nation’s most established and dynamic musical institutions. Each season the organization reaches in excess of 25,000 persons with more than 25 performances and a comprehensive educational/outreach program. The chorus consists of approximately 175 volunteer singers that demonstrate the Choir’s commitment to musical excellence during each forty-four-week season.
The Symphonic Choir is the choral partner of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, having been founded in 1937 at the Orchestra’s request to perform the great choral-orchestral repertoire. Over the years, this partnership with the ISO has remained at the very core of the Choir’s existence. This partnership exhibits the very best of collaborative ideals–two successfully independent arts organizations combining their strengths to create beautifully lasting musical results.
