Twenty-four professional voices combine in this choral ensemble, bringing to life rarely-performed, striking works by contemporary classical composers. The result: a kind of music-making you won't find anywhere else.
Our 46th Anniversary season
We open this season with a concert for winter unlike any other concert you'll hear in Chicago. In her WFC conducting debut, guest conductor Carling FitzSimmons offers a new exploration of the season of frigid darkness, warmth and light. Join us in marking our next chapter and hear the Chorale as you've never heard us before.
carling Fitzsimmons Guest Conducts WFC 46th Season
For some, conducting an ensemble as established as the WFC could be daunting. For Carling, it's the next step in her already diverse and impressive ascent as a unique voice in Chicago's rich musical landscape. One of only a handful of conductors to direct the ensemble, Carling creates a legacy of her own as the first female and youngest rising talent to bring her vision to our stage.
