MISSION & VISION
As a nonprofit arts organization, the Grand Forks Chorales has created opportunities for community members to participate in high quality choral works for over 30 years! The Chorales presents its 2017-2018 season with two choirs: the Grand Forks Chorale and the Master Chorale. The Grand Forks Chorale features singers from a wide variety of backgrounds that have a passion for the choral arts and are committed to the experience of choral singing. Members of the Grand Forks Chorale may also audition to be part of the Master Chorale, a professional-caliber chamber choir that presents rare and recognizable choral music from a whole range of eras, languages, and musical styles.
An auditioned, regional choral organization, the Grand Forks Chorales provides opportunities for singers of all ability levels to perform great choral music and to present high quality public programs. Its mission is to expand the role of choral music in the cultural life of the region, to engage community members, music professionals, and students through music education and mentoring, and to enrich the lives of area residents through performance.
Recognized for its professionalism, longstanding artistic excellence, and the quality of its material selection and performances, the Grand Forks Chorales will be the premiere choral organization in the Red River Valley and North Dakota. The Grand Forks Chorales will provide educational opportunities for community members, music professionals, and students through performance, workshops, and other outreach activities. Sustainable through member, individual, corporate, and grant support, the Grand Forks Chorales will be the recognized choral music leader, enhancing the quality of life for the region and enriching the lives of audience members and choir members, alike, through performance.
