St. Joseph Community Chorus
It is the mission of the St. Joseph Community Chorus to foster the enjoyment and appreciation of quality choral music among its membership and the regional community by providing an organization of the highest caliber to present exceptional performances of choral literature. This ensemble is the largest all-volunteer performing organization in Northwest Missouri.
Founded in 1980, the St. Joseph Community Chorus, in partnership with Missouri Western State University, presents interesting, challenging and diverse programs of choral music from classical to contemporary throughout the Midwest region. The Chorus, open to all age groups high school and above, includes 85 singers that rehearse every Monday night from 7:30 9:20 p.m. in the Missouri Western State University Choir Room (Potter 112). Singers may join the Chorus at the beginning of each semester and may take the course for university credit if they choose.
A Word From Artistic Director, Dr. David Benz.
Welcome to the 32nd concert season of the St. Joseph Community Chorus! How wonderful to celebrate 32 years of concerts for the St. Joseph community. We kick off our concert season with our guests, Monroe Crossing, the internationally acclaimed bluegrass band from St. Paul, Minnesota. They will perform The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass with us at Word of Life Church. Don't miss this uniquely special event! Please read about our other concerts here on the website. Our concerts are supported by our audience members, our Business Sponsors, and our Friends of the Chorus. While we work to learn and present beautiful concerts, our financial supporters are the ones who give us our voice. I hope you will attend all three concerts this season and that you will be a subscribing supporter of the St. Joseph Community Chorus, The Voice of Community.
