Chorale

The Spokane Symphony Chorale was established in 1955 as a volunteer organization and, since 1978, has been an official entity of the Spokane Symphony. As part of the Spokane Symphony, we have performed a wide range of musical works, such as Dvorak's Te Deum, Verdi's Requiem, Handel's Messiah, Britten's War Requiem, Mendelssohn's Lobgesang, Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, Mozart's C Minor Mass, the "Damnation of Faust" by Berlioz, and numerous operas such as Verdi's Rigoletto, Puccini's La bohème, and Bizet's Carmen.

Led by Director Kristina Ploeger-Hekmatpanah, the Chorale enjoys a dedicated volunteer base of 80 singers from the Spokane area; including many who commute from Coeur d'Alene, Davenport, Sandpoint, Pullman and many other locations to participate in the over 100 hours of volunteer rehearsal and performance time required for each concert season. The professions of these volunteers are varied; music educators, church choir directors, opera and theater performers, doctors, nurses, realtors, salesmen, homemakers, and many others who come together to share a love of singing.
