About Us
The Claremont Chorale

The Claremont Chorale is a community chorus based in the university town of Claremont, located about 25 miles east of Los Angeles, California. The singers are selected by audition and committed to excellence in the performance of all types of music for chorus. It is an independent, non-profit 501c(3) organization.

Our Mission
The mission of the Claremont Chorale is to be a well-organized community choral group that provides a variety of high-quality choral music for the benefit of residents of the city of Claremont and surrounding communities, sustains the heritage of choral music, and provides an opportunity for singers to enhance their musical skills.

A Little History
Established in 1968 as the Lincoln Twenty Chorale under Chris Trussel, the Chorale today is comprised of approximately sixty volunteer singers from all walks of life who rehearse together weekly. The Chorale serves the community by performing a series of concerts each season and through educational outreach. Over its four decades of singing the choir has presented a diverse, international repertoire embracing music from the past five centuries as well as music of our time. Our concerts encompass major works with full orchestra, instrumental ensemble and cappella.

The Chorale has sung under the direction of Gregory Norton since 1993. Previous conductors include Donald Brinegar, Dennis Keller, Ted Reed, Scott Bowen and Hanan Yaqub.

Singing With Others
In recent years, the Chorale has participated in the choral festival in Redlands, Messiah concerts in Santa Monica and Glendale, a concert exchange with the U.C. Berkeley Alumni Chorus, numerous joint concerts with other area choirs. In 2006 the Chorale participated in the Seventh International Choral Festival in Puebla, Mexico.
