NSCS Current Season
The North Shore Choral Society normally sings three concerts each season; one in the Fall (November or December), a second in late winter (February or March), and a third in the Spring (May or June). Our season brochure is published in August.
Our 77th Season
The theme of this season is "A Lifetime of Singing" and it is a season of collaboration for us! We have three interesting concerts and a workshop planned. (Click here for information about our Lifetime of Singing Workshop.) Plus we will join the Evanston Symphony Orchestra for the popular holiday program, An Evanston Symphony Christmas on December 9, 2012.
"Songs of Praise and Thanksgiving"
The North Shore Choral Society welcomes as special guests The Oakdale Christian Academy Concert Choir, Terrance J. Smith, Director.
The OCA Concert Choir hails from the South Side of Chicago and is known for its electric and committed performances. Their young and dynamic leader Terrance J. Smith will lead both the children and the combined choirs in spirituals, gospel and inspirational songs, new and traditional.
The North Shore Choral Society will also share music of praise and thanksgiving, including Randol Alan Bass’s Gloria featuring pianist Sharon Rich Peterson.
Join the North Shore Choral Society at the Vineyard Christian Church for an afternoon of uplifting and joyful singing.
