Rehearsals for the Salina Chorale are held during the fall and spring semesters on Monday evenings, 7-8:30 p.m., at Kansas Wesleyan University, in the Choir Room on the east end of the second floor of the Hall of the Pioneers. Dues are $30 per semester. New members pay a $35 fee for concert clothing.
Chorale performances are the choir's holiday and spring concerts, plus guest appearances with the Salina Symphony -- such as the symphony's two Christmas concert performances in the Stiefel Theatre in mid-December.
The Salina Chorale is proud to be one of the Salina area's longtime nonprofit organizations. Your support enables us to not only continue our concert and community outreach. Please consider becoming a supporter today.
