The Chorale is a Wednesday night institution in bi-college life. An oratorio choir of 120-150 singers, the Chorale performs a major work with orchestra each semester under the direction of Prof. of Music Thomas Lloyd. (See Musical Events for programs of this year's concerts).  Members include bi-college students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends from the surrounding community.  The orchestra is usually made up of advanced bi-college musicians supplemented by music students from Curtis and Temple.  Soloists have included students who are members of Chorale, Chamber Singers and guest artists.  Auditions for singers are held at the beginning of each semester for students who have not previously sung in Chorale. Once admitted, re-audition is not required for members in good standing.  Audition requirements are the same as those for Chamber Singers, without the expectation of a solo piece.

Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings from 6:50 - 8:50 in Marshall Auditorium (HC). Visitors are welcome at rehearsals. For further information call Thomas Lloyd at (610) 896-1006 or email
