Protecting Your Health: Our choir will follow the State of Illinois COVID guidelines that are in place at the time of each of the season’s performances. As of this writing, masks will be required both for singers and our audience on December 3, 4 and 5.  We assure you that each member of the choir who will be singing, as well as our staff, are fully vaccinated, and vaccine cards have been checked.  Currently we have no plans to require our audience to show proof of vaccination, but we strongly encourage those who are not vaccinated to wait and join us at a future performance.


THE MISSION of St. Charles Singers is to perform, promote and preserve the finest choral music to inspire diverse audiences regionally, nationally and internationally. Thank you for your belief in our mission and for your support of our choir.
