Irving Chorale

A nonprofit organization

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.


Irving Chorale's aim is to offer innovative and creative programs each season.

Irving Chorale has the privilege to be under the Artistic Direction of Harry Wooten; a graduate of William Jewel College with additional degrees from the Vienna International Music Conservatory and Southwest Baptist Theological Seminary. 

Eunice Tavaglione, the accompanist, received her Bachelor of Music degree in Philadelphia. She also received a Master of Music degree in piano performance at the University of North Texas. Ms. Tavaglione has traveled extensively in parts of the US, Europe, Asia and South America accompanying various choral groups and performing piano solos. Ms. Tavaglione has served as accompanist for the Irving Chorale since 2002.


Irving Chorale is a volunteer auditioned mixed voice chorus made up of dues paying members from Irving and neighboring cities. The volunteer Board of Directors are elected by and from the membership.

Irving Chorale's Mission Statement imparts the dedication to promoting the high standards of choral performance, broadening the general music repertoire, and expanding the presence of choral music to the arts in Irving and the DFW metroplex.

Outreach and education are ongoing goals with collaboration playing a big part. Each season Irving Chorale endeavors to include local arts organizations. With this goal Irving Chorale seeks to engage local instrumentalists, guest soloists and featuring Irving ISD Fine Arts groups.

Accommodations are made to allow persons with physical disabilities to participate in membership and/or attend our concerts.


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

Like many other performance organizations, each season sets up momentum and support for the following year. Our abbreviated seasons due to Covid-19 limited the Chorale's sources of income from normal channels during our previous two seasons.

Our main performances this season include John Rutter’s contemporary "Requiem", performed with a chamber ensemble on Oct. 16, 2022; a special holiday concert in conjunction with the Irving Symphony Orchestra on Dec. 10, 2022 and Mahler’s "Symphony No. 2", performed at the Eisemann Center on April 29, 2023.

In addition to our main performances, we plan to do smaller outreach performances in Irving during the winter and spring holiday seasons.

We are a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation and donations are tax deductible.
