Whitworth Community Chorale to Perform at the Fox Theater on April 14

March 28, 2024

The Whitworth Community Chorale is set to take the stage at the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox in downtown Spokane on Sunday, April 14, at 7:30 p.m. 

The chorale has grown to 150 members since it was formed last fall. Its second concert, From the Altar to the Stage, will feature the Deutsche Messe (German Mass) D 872 by Franz Schubert. Audience members will also experience well-known choruses from notable operas and musicals. 

Conducted by Joshua Chism, the Whitworth Community Chorale is a non-auditioned, open-enrollment choral ensemble for community singers of all ages and experience levels as well as Whitworth students, employees and alumni. 

The chorale was formed to provide singers with a unique opportunity to participate in a rigorous and high-level environment that doesn’t require a major time commitment. Dedicated to the performance of large-scale choral masterworks in addition to secular and sacred choral works, the chorale rehearses Monday evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m. during the Whitworth University academic calendar.
