The Shorter Chorale, founded in 1968, is widely regarded as one of the finest collegiate choral ensembles in the southeastern United States. Earlier this fall, it was featured on the hour-long radio program “The Atlanta Music Scene” on WABE 90.1 FM, the National Public Radio affiliate in Atlanta. In January 2007 the Chorale recorded its first professionally produced CD, A Savior From On High, which is due for release in late fall 2007. The 2004-2005 season featured a tour of the great cathedrals and churches of England with performances in Coventry Cathedral, Canterbury Cathedral, Christ Church, Oxford and Great St. Mary’s in Cambridge. The Chorale will tour Italy in 2008.
The Chorale has been featured at the Georgia convention of the American Choral Directors Association, Georgia Music Educators In-Service Conferences, as well as the Georgia National Association of Teachers of Singing convention. This exceptional choir continues its traditions of excellence with many guest appearances throughout the United States.
