Established in 1968, the Northwest Chamber Chorus under the direction of Mark Kloepper, has long been recognized as one of the finest choirs in the Pacific Northwest. The 40-voice ensemble of men and women is critically acclaimed for its compelling performances of the best classical choral music. The group's extensive repertoire ranges from Medieval and Renaissance music to 21st century compositions.
Celebrating its 49th year of bringing great choral music to audiences in the Puget Sound region, the Northwest Chamber Chorus enjoys large, enthusiastic audiences and extensive support and praise from the arts community. The group is a member of the Greater Seattle Choral Consortium, and is featured often on Classical KING FM as part of the Northwest Focus program. The NWCC offers four commercial CDs including the 40th Anniversary Live!, Handel Coronation Anthems and A Ceremony of Carols. NWCC Sings Folk Songs, Hymns and Spirituals CD was released in November 2015.
The Northwest Chamber Chorus has performed with the Seattle Symphony, the Northwest Chamber Orchestra, Seattle Youth Symphony, Cascadia Brass, Spectrum Dance Company, ACT Theatre, Philharmonia Northwest, Baroque Northwest, and the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra as part of their annual Duke Ellington Sacred Concert. The Northwest Chamber Chorus receives financial support from a variety of sources including individual donors, local businesses, an annual Spring Benefit and Auction, and grants from the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, 4Culture of King County and Seattle Foundation through the annual GiveBIG campaign.
