Allentown Symphony Chorus

Allentown Symphony Chorus Sponsor:
JILL & ALFRED DOUGLASS, III
in memory of Roberta Raker Hudders & William Strauss Hudders


The Allentown Symphony Chorus is a professional level chorus that will be featured at least once a year with the Allentown Symphony Orchestra. This chorus is designed to not compete with other Lehigh Valley choruses, and will only rehearse six weeks prior to each featured concert.


The Allentown Symphony Chorus will be comprised of approximately 50 voices. There will be special auditions for paid Section Leaders and Assistant Section Leaders. There will also be auditions for positions in a Scholarship Quartet, which will be open to local college students upon teacher recommendation.
