The Chorale

Coe College Chorale"Chorale is the best part of my day when I can just relax, take a break from classes and do something that inspires me to work harder. It makes me appreciate the simple things in life that you can only find when singing."

Coe's Chorale has been a veritable institution at the college for over 50 years, specializing in music for treble voices. Open to all sopranos and altos on campus, including students, faculty, and staff, the chorale presents the annual Christmas Convocation and Christmas Vespers. These services of lessons and carols are a highlight of the holiday season at Coe.
