$5,000 Goal

Irving Chorale’s mission is to promote the highest standards of choral performance and share our love of singing and music in Irving, the Dallas/Ft Worth Metroplex, the State of Texas and around the world.

We collaborate with other arts groups to highlight all areas of performance and establish a greater presence in Irving and surrounding communities.

We hope to impart the love of choral music to younger singers and influence them to maintain participation for future generations through outreach and education.

Needs

Irving Chorale is in need of additional support for program funding.

Our main performances for the 2024-2025 season include:

October 19, 2024 - Elements - Irving Chorale will present a joint concert with Flutissimo Flute Choir, a choir comprised of over 30 flutes. This collaboration will combine strong vocals with lovely wind instruments to explore musical interpretations of air, fire, water or earth in a piece to be commissioned by the Irving Chorale.

December 14, 2024 - Christmas - Irving Chorale is once again honored to be asked to sing with the Irving Symphony for the kick-off of the Christmas season.

Like the Irving Chorale, LCC receives funding to promote the arts community in Lewisville. The combined choirs will perform classic pieces with a futuristic vibe for a concert performed in each of their respective cities.

May 4, 2025 - Rat Pack Era Remembered - Our annual bistro fundraiser will provide music from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Joey Bishop and more. Great music from the 50's and 60's to represent an era of music almost forgotten.
