Join the Chorus
Searching for a New Musical Challenge?
The dedicated volunteers of the Apollo Chorus strive for world-class artistic quality in every performance. We perform preeminent choral works, such as Handel’s Messiah, Bach's St John Passion, and a diverse mix of gospel, jazz, folk and even the Beatles.
If you are an experienced choral singer looking for a musical challenge, we encourage you to audition for membership. Auditions for Spring 2022 will be in early January.

Rehearsal and Performance Requirements
Our music season runs parallel to the school-year calendar. Rehearsals start after Labor Day and continue on Monday evenings until the December concert. After the holidays, rehearsals resume in early January and continue until May.
Members are expected to attend rehearsals regularly and must sing in all major concerts and dress rehearsals. Members are required to pay $125 annual dues as well as purchase music (average $40 per season) and their performance attire (black tuxedos for men, Apollo dresses for women).
A black choral performance folder is also required and can be obtained for $20 through the chorus.
Members also have the opportunity to sing at special event performances throughout the year and during the summer, which are not part of Apollo's regular performance schedule. Extra rehearsals are typically required for these additional performances.
The Apollo Chorus of Chicago welcomes new members to carry on its tradition of bringing the finest classical and sacred music to the Chicago area since 1872.
