The Milwaukee Symphony Chorus, founded in 1976, is known and respected as one of the finest choruses in the country. Under the direction of Dr. Cheryl Frazes Hill, the 2021.22 chorus season with the MSO will include Holiday Pops, the immensely popular Messiah, a world premiere arrangment of Grieg’s Peer Gynt, Duruflé’s Requiem, and to finish the season, the glorious Symphony No. 9 by Beethoven.  The 150-member volunteer chorus has been praised by reviewers for “technical agility,” “remarkable ensemble cohesion,” and “tremendous clarity.”  We anticipate an exciting first season of in-person performances in our acoustically excellent, gorgeous new concert hall and are eager to welcome new talent to our endeavors.  

Compensation and Benefits: 

All members of the Milwaukee Symphony Chorus are volunteers.  The non-monetary compensation of artistic and personal satisfaction are extremely competitive.   Chorus members do get some practical perks such as discounted (even complimentary) tickets to Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra performances.
