St. Joseph Community Chorus
The Voice of Community

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 Frank D. Thomas,
Founding Artistic Director


Welcome to the 33rd concert season of the St. Joseph Community Chorus! It is wonderful to be back and celebrate 33 years of concerts for the St. Joseph community. The 2013-2014 concert season begins with a performance by the Chamber Choir and Chorus at First Presbyterian Church in downtown St. Joseph. The music of Belmont, Clausen, Berger, Diemer, Lennon & McCartney, Rutter and others will be featured.

Dr. Ruth Krusemark from Benedictine College will be the guest organist. 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..

Sincerely yours,
Frank D. Thomas,
Artistic Director
