The La Crosse Chamber Chorale is a volunteer, community-based choir comprised of singers who are united by a love of chorale singing.
The chorale was founded in 1986 and is currently led by Dr. Christopher Hathaway.
Our staff, singers and board of directors are committed to bringing professional quality choral music, artistic excellence, and creative programming to the coulee region.
Join us for our 38th concert season!
We are excited to invite you to a season of beautiful and thought-provoking music – music filled with powerful and emotional messages of love, longing and acceptance, perseverance in the face of persecution, and the relentless pursuit of justice. This year promises to be an exciting season filled with music that will leave you inspired and invigorated to be ambassadors for humanity.

Our fall concerts, Actions Speak, will feature pieces reflecting on the impact of human actions on our personal and communal lives, and will include movements from William Byrd’s Mass for Four Voices, love songs both poignant and sensuous, works written in commemoration of some of the most powerful moments in history, and compositions shedding light on pressing issues plaguing our society today. Our hope is that these concerts will leave you moved, inspired and invigorated, and that through music we can fulfill the promise of our season title – to demonstrate that actions can speak louder than words!

Let calm and contemplation fill your heart and mind as you listen to music by some of the most revered choral composers, including Bach, Billings, Bruckner and de Victoria, and by contemporary composers Sydney Guillaume, Z.

We will be joining with the UWL Concert Choir, the Viterbo Concert Choir and selected outstanding high school students from our area. Each choir will present a set of pieces, and the entire group will combine for a final set, filling the stage with over 150 singers ranging from high school students to retirees. We are so appreciative of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration for supporting this event through grant funding, and we look forward to celebrating the unity and delight that music and singing bring us!
