We believe that music is vital to the wellness of our community. By serving as one of our region's only semi-professional choruses, we offer our listeners a glimpse into the cultural richness that abounds in the Permian Basin and in the greater West Texas region.
Our singers come from an array of cultural backgrounds, ages, musical experiences and interests. But shared among all of our members is the persistent desire to bring relevant, deeply engaging, uncompromisingly excellent artistic experiences to our audiences.
Rehearsals are Thursday evenings, September through the end of May, from 7:00-9:30pm. We rehearse in the Mason Rehearsal Hall at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center 1310 N FM 1788 in Midland.
We encourage our members to participate in every rehearsal, however, depending on the circumstances one may be excused from rehearsals. Concert attendance follows the same protocol.
The Allegro Chorale welcomes all singers who desire to be a part of the work that makes our community's voice a uniquely spectacular one. Each Fall we welcome interested singers to audition for membership.
