The North Shore Choral Society, a 140 member community chorus, has been a prominent musical force serving the northern suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, and beyond for over 80 years, giving many hundreds of nonprofessional singers the opportunity to perform choral masterworks, both old and new. The Society's repertoire ranges from the traditional to the avant-garde. Few choruses, whether professional or amateur, have as distinguished a track record of presenting such a variety of music. The chorus has performed at Ravinia with the Ravinia Festival Orchestra. The Society features outstanding soloists, and some of the area's finest musicians play in the orchestras engaged for the performances.
