Join Us for Our 44th Season
The 2015-2016 Schedule is Set
For more than forty years the Ferris Chorale has thrilled audiences in its hometown Chicago, across the country and around the world. Our concert tours have taken us to prestigious international music festivals and our internationally broadcast recordings have brought the joy of our music making to hundreds of thousands of listeners. In keeping with this long standing tradition, the three subscription series features an exciting collaboration with a 200 voice youth ensemble and the thrilling choral and instrumental works of American composer Leo Nestor, who will be in attendance for the performances.
All in all, this 44th season is truly exceptional and, as always, full of variety and splendid melody.
