The Burbank Chorale has been inspiring audiences for nearly a century with electrifying performances of the world's greatest choral music.
The Burbank Chorale is a community chorus founded in 1920, making it the oldest continuously performing arts group in the San Fernando Valley. We require a basic vocal audition to join the Chorale. Once you are a member, you will have the opportunity to audition for solo parts. As a group, our focus is on entertaining the community and inspiring interest in the live performance of choral music. As individual singers, our focus is on musical education, teamwork, and personal growth.
The Burbank Chorale currently numbers approximately 70 singers, ranging in age from 25 to 80 and representing a variety of backgrounds. Members range from highly experienced professionals to enthusiastic amateurs. The core repertoire encompasses classic masterworks by Handel, Mozart, Bach and Brahms, augmented by the music of Broadway, pop favorites, and music from diverse cultures.
