About Fox Valley Chorus
Fox Valley Chorus is a membership organization of female singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have around 40 singers of all ages, all walks of life, and from all parts of the Fox Valley area and beyond.
The main purpose of Fox Valley Chorus is to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at annual competitions. We also perform Singing Christmas cards. We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out our Hire Us section.
In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of acapella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. A couple of times a year, we will get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.
CompetitionIn the spring of every year, Fox Valley Chorus participates in the Northern Lights Region 6 chorus competition. We won the overall chorus competition in Rochester, Minnesota on May 21st-22nd, 2016, which makes us eligible for the international competition in Las Vegas Nevada in October, 2017. Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other, and get some constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected each year. This year our Regional Competition is on April 28th and 29th in Minneapolis, MN where we will do a 'swan set' because we are last year's regional champions and in fall we will be competiting at the International competition.
