With 100 auditioned singers, Kirkland Choral Society is one of the premier large choral groups in the Puget Sound region. Now entering its 31st season, the Choral Society's repertoire emphasizes the great works for chorus and orchestra, but also includes a wide variety of choral music, including fine works by the leading composers of our day.
For the past seven seasons KCS has maintained a partnership with one of Seattle’s fine orchestras, Philharmonia Northwest, regularly performing the great works for chorus and orchestra at Benaroya Hall.
Recently, KCS has commissioned and given the world premiere of significant new choral works by Kirke Mechem, Ola Gjeilo, Carol Barnett, and Donald Skirvin.
The Choral Society also features a Chamber Singers ensemble drawn from the larger chorus, performing unaccompanied choral repertoire, and music suited to smaller ensembles and venues.
Artistic Director Glenn R. Gregg has been a professional conductor for over 35 years. He holds a Doctor of Musical Arts in choral conducting from the University of Washington and a Master of Music in conducting from California State University, Northridge, as well as a degree in piano performance. This is his 21st season with KCS.
