The Elkhart Community Chorus

The Elkhart Community Chorus is a choir made up of music lovers in the Elkhart Indiana area.

What started out as a choir whose membership was made up of Elkhart High School Alumni (and was formerly called the Elkhart Alumni Choir) has grown to include anyone who enjoys participating in a group of serious choral singers.

Previous experience in a musical group is not a requirement, but most of our members have some choral or other music experience, such as a church choir, high school music, or experience with a musical instrument.

We are welcoming new members.  If you want to join just fill out the ELCOchorus member form and come to the next rehearsal!

Our practices are fun, educational, and guaranteed to fulfill your joy in singing.

See the calendar page for rehearsal and performance dates. 

Watch our debut performance as the Elkhart Alumni Choir on June 17, 2011 at the Lerner Theatre grand opening in Elkhart, IN.

After this performance we organized as the Elkhart Community Chorus.

Member Information

Due to concerns with the coronavirus situation, the Elkhart Community Chorus is suspending all rehearsals for the Spring and Winter 2020 season.

Emails have been sent to members with instruction for returning the 2020 Spring season music and folders.

We plan to resume when we can all feel comfortable meeting again.  We are hoping that will be in time for the Spring 2021 season.

I’ll send an email when we have more information about when we can resume.

Please check back here and on our Facebook page for updates.


If you'd like to sing with a group of great people, if you're looking for a place to join a community based organization that's open to all choral music lovers, then check us out!

Mike Wade will be directing us again next season.  This is a wonderful opportunity as Mike has LOTS of experience directing and teaching including the Indiana University South Bend Chorale and Chamber Choir, Crown Point, and Elkhart Memorial High Schools.

This season we'll be meeting at St. Paul's United Methodist Church located at 405 West Beardsley Ave., Elkhart IN.

Our rehearsals will again be on selected Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings.  See the calendar page for the complete list of rehearsal dates

We are asking for a $20 donation when you pick up your music folder.  The music and folders will need to be returned at the end of the season.

If you participated last season, you know how much we accomplished and how enducational (and fun) it was.

If you missed last season – it’s time to get back in the game. 

If you like to sing and you're looking for a group of friendly, talented, and fun people - join us! 

We're planning for several performances this season.  This’ll be a fun-filled, wonderful time.
