Guest Speaker Trisha Clare, President Concert Choir in Skokie.

Trisha Clare, Rotary Club of Skokie Valley Grant Recipient, has been the President of  the Skokie Concert Choir for the past six year.

For 30 years, the Skokie Concert Choir has shared a love of music with the local community. Founded in October 1986 as the Skokie Community Chorus, this choir has grown substantially, currently boasting over 50 members, including men and women of all ages and backgrounds.
 
The Skokie Concert Choir provides an opportunity for its members to learn a wide variety of music and perform in various settings. Their performances in concerts and for special occasions are designed to promote artistic and educational growth for both the choir and the broader community.
 
The Skokie Concert Choir is the musical home for its members, who rehearse once a week (pre covid-19) for two concerts a year – Winter and Spring. Their concert programs feature a wide variety of music, ranging from classical to folk to pop standards and show tunes!
 
They participate in two annual local events: the Interfaith Service of Thanksgiving hosted by the Niles Township Clergy Forum and the Skokie Festival of Cultures. They also perform at local senior residences and nursing homes.
The only requirement is a love of singing – no auditions are necessary and all are welcome! New members may join twice a year: rehearsals begin in February for our Spring Concert, and in September for our Winter Concert.
