Chorus Manager



Our membership is made up of singers from a wide variety of backgrounds and occupations. We share a passion for choral singing and for the pursuit of musical excellence.

There are no sales expectations or fees required of members (apart from a small, one-time refundable music deposit), and the MSO provides all music.  Singers provide their own concert attire and performance folder.


REhearsals and performances

The Milwaukee Symphony Chorus rehearses and performs in the MSO’s beautiful new building, the Bradley Symphony Center, in downtown Milwaukee.

We rehearse on Monday evenings (and select Tuesdays) from 7:00-9:45 p.m., typically from September through June. During performance weeks we rehearse or perform most every evening. Not every singer participates in every concert series in a given season, so time commitments vary. Some personal practice and preparation is expected between weekly rehearsals.
