The California Desert Chorale
The California Desert Chorale exists to bring joy to singers and audiences alike by providing a wide variety of choral and other inspiring vocal musical performances which are designed to entertain, educate, and enrich the diverse audiences of Southern California’s desert communities.
The Chorale is comprised of both professional and amateur singers who love a wide variety of musical styles. Our members are auditioned and come to the ensemble with extensive choral experience. Concerts by the California Desert Chorale offer music appealing to all audiences. Our performances are ethereal, dynamic, enthusiastic, humorous, and poignant.
Please check our “Concerts” page for information on our current seasons events. We hope to see you there!
A Message from the Artistic Director
Thank you for taking the time to visit California Desert Chorale’s website. After more than four years as the Artistic Director of this organization, I take great pride in the many achievements of the wonderful group of people who make up our membership and the dedicated, tireless individuals who comprise our Board of Directors. Working together, these people raise collaboration to an art and I remain honored to be leading them to ever higher standards of performance and shepherding their emergence as one of the Coachella Valley’s genuine cultural treasures.
While a number of our members are professional singers, many others are talented, motivated amateurs who bring a wealth of musical education and varied choral experience to our ensemble. I’m convinced that it’s exactly this breadth of experience that allows me to explore such an extraordinary variety of choral literature with the Chorale.
Whether you hear California Desert Chorale at one of our series concerts, or one of our many community service performances for local charities, please, take the time to stop and say hello to me and all of our members afterward. We are, after all, first and foremost, about people working together, and we continually aspire to broaden and strengthen our connection to the people of our own beautiful valley. I invite you to come and witness the grace and humanity reflected on the faces of our members, as they perform a piece of great music. You will, without question, be enriched, educated and entertained.
