At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the Great War ended. One hundred years later, the Tyler Civic Chorale seeks to re-tell the stories of a generation of composers and writers who either lost their lives in conflict or whose lives were permanently affected by the First World War. 

Tyler Civic Chorale:

Now in its 51st season as Tyler’s premier 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 large works by Mendelssohn, Brahms, Bruckner, Vaughan Williams and Kodaly, and 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.
