Now in its 50th season as Tyler’s premiere choral ensemble, the Tyler Civic Chorale continues to bring to life an impressive range of music, from great, sacred masterworks to beloved American folk songs and carols. Over the course of its history with most of the last half-century in residence at First Presbyterian Church–the Chorale has sung requiems by Brahms, Mozart, Duruflé and Fauré, as well as Handel’s Messiah, Haydn’s Creation, and dozens of other masses, motets, cantatas, and oratorios.

While the major corpus of choral music is drawn from the Western Christian church, the Chorale also seeks to honor a great breadth of musical traditions extending beyond the sacred, engaging with the 20th-century American songbook, modern composers, folk songs and carols, madrigal compositions, and more.

The Artists in Residence at Fine Arts@FPC program is the host to rehearsals and performances of several local musical ensembles, providing a beautiful space for the community to practice and experience the musical arts.

Presented by Fine Arts @ FPC.
