The Voice of Community

St. Joseph Community Chorus

It is the mission of the St. Joseph Community Chorus to foster the enjoyment and appreciation of quality choral music among its membership and the regional community by providing an organization of the highest caliber to present exceptional performances of choral literature. This ensemble is the largest all-volunteer performing organization in Northwest Missouri.

Founded in 1980, the St. Joseph Community Chorus, in partnership with Missouri Western State University, presents interesting, challenging and diverse programs of choral music from classical to contemporary throughout the Midwest region. The Chorus, open to all age groups high school and above, includes 85 singers that rehearse every Monday night from 7:30 – 9:20 p.m. in the Missouri Western State University Choir Room (Potter 112). Singers may join the Chorus at the beginning of each semester and may take the course for university credit if they choose.

A Word From Frank D. Thomas,
Founding Artistic Director


Welcome to the 35th concert season of the St. Joseph Community Chorus! The 2014-2015 season begins with a performance at Francis Street First United Methodist Church in downtown St. Joseph. In collaboration with the St. Joseph chapter of the American Guild of Organists. the David H. Morton Memorial concert will feature guest organist Dr. Joby Bell from the Hayes School of Music, Boone, NC.

The Christmas concerts are in collaboration with the award winning Fountain City Brass Band. We are excited to once again work with this amazing brass ensemble and present our holiday concerts in the beautiful Cathedral of St. Joseph. Our final concert will present Celebrated Choruses from Musical Theater & the Cinema - a great way to round out the year.

The Chorus offers adults an opportunity for creative musical expression through singing. We have tried this year to choose music from a wide variety of styles and hope that you will enjoy all three concerts. To buy season tickets is the most economical way to hear the entire season. Support by our audience members, our Business Sponsors, and our Friends of the Chorus make these concerts possible. I hope you will be a subscribing supporter of the St. Joseph Community Chorus.

Sincerely yours,
Frank D. Thomas,
Artistic Director
