The Lake Forest College Concert Choir and Chamber Singers perform a variety of choral music exploring classical, global, and popular repertoire for mixed chorus from the Renaissance through the 21st century. Concerts, both on and off campus, may include convention presentations, touring, and collaborations with other ensembles including the LFC Chamber Orchestra, other college and community choruses, and a wide range of soloists.
On February 22, 2018, members of the Lake Forest College combined choirs (Concert Choir and Women’s Choir) went on tour to Wisconsin. They visited Ripon College, Ripon, WI, to share a joint rehearsal with the College’s Community Choral Union and their conductor Dr. John Hughes. They visited Roncalli High School where the ensembles shared a “side-by-side” with the high school’s combined choirs. They also visited Silver Lake College, Manitowoc, WI, to workshop with their Concert Choir, followed by a performance as part of the College’s Music Department Concert.
Why do you sing?
“Being a part of the choir at Lake Forest College provides an escape from the every day stress of other classes. Although we are all very much different, the passion for singing brings us together. It is a special group; it’s a family.”
