The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir was founded in 1937 to perform the great choral-orchestral masterworks. Unlike many peer symphonic choruses throughout the United States, this chorus was established as a separate non-profit arts organization from its sister symphony orchestra, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.
Comprised of more than 200 all-volunteer singers, the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir is the largest chorus in the state of Indiana, among the oldest symphonic chorus in the United States, and is one of the most musically active symphonic choruses nationally. Through a competitive annual audition process, singers are selected to perform in the 42-week concert season which is led by a professional staff and volunteer Board of Directors.
Whether performing in venues throughout central Indiana – from Hilbert Circle Theater, Clowes Memorial Hall and the Palladium – or at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, or in Europe and Asia, the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir represents the community and the art form with pride. Featured at Super Bowl XLVI, on international radio and television broadcasts, and on major recording labels, the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir touches hundreds of thousands through the best choral music.
The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir is dedicated to excellence in the performance of choral music, to creating and performing new choral masterworks, and to community outreach and education. For more information about the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir, visit www.indychoir.org.
