The Northwest Chorale has been feeding those in need since 1978, and currently presents concerts during the Christmas season and in late spring. We also sponsor a Messiah sing-along/play-along each year during the holiday season.

All Northwest Chorale concerts are free to attend. Donations are graciously accepted with all funds going to benefit Northwest Harvest.

"In the Pacific Northwest we are blessed with wonderful orchestral, choral, and chamber groups not well known on the national stage. Each year, so much fine music is available to everyone, and Northwest Chorale must be considered near the top in performance. Their spirited voices excel in a variety of repertoire, and I have deeply enjoyed each concert I have attended."
Philip Haldeman, American Record Guide (1996-2006)
