The Cleveland Chamber Choir presents transformative musical experiences through uncompromising artistry and excellence in a thought-provoking and widely-varied repertoire of choral music. The Cleveland Chamber Choir provides audiences with exceptional performances of unique and diverse repertoire, blending music by living composers with six centuries of choral repertoire, and emphasizing the works of composers historically excluded from the concert hall. Comprised of versatile singers, our professional ensemble enriches the Northeast Ohio community and beyond through innovative public performances and artistic collaborations, the Cleveland Chamber Choir gives voice to our shared human experience, inspiring and engaging diverse audiences
Since its founding in 2015, the Choir has won acclaim for inclusive programming, for partnering with community charities, and for free concerts that ensure everyone can afford to hear world-class professional choral singing. Throughout its eight seasons, the Choir has commissioned and/or given world or United States premieres of over 35 new works.
Under the direction of Artistic Director Gregory Ristow, the Cleveland Chamber Choir brings together performing artists, administrators, audience members, and donors with the philosophy that choral music is a vehicle for good in the world that should be accessible and welcoming to all.
