The Lehigh Valley Chorale is a diverse group of people who are united by our passion for singing and making music. We span a wide range of ages, professions, talents and singing backgrounds, and many of our singers describe our rehearsals as “the highlight of my week.”
Under the direction of Ed Milisits, the Chorale performs an eclectic repertoire of music in many different languages and genres — from classical to show tunes, and everything in between. We strive to challenge ourselves and our audiences while remaining accessible and approachable.
Founded by a group dedicated singers who wanted to enrich the cultural climate of the Lehigh Valley by forming a member governed, quality, open, community choir. Spring 2016 marked the inaugural season of the Lehigh Valley Chorale under the artistic direction of Edward Milisits II. Since then, we have grown to become a 60+ member organization dedicated to brining choral music to the Lehigh Valley.
Talking about the surprising benefits of singing, as expounded by William Byrd in 1588, Stephen Cleobury, Director of Music at King's College, Cambridge discusses the health of choral music and the challenge of identifying young boys to sing in the choir.
