Announcing the 10th Annual Windy City Choral Festival

Windy City Choral Festival Performance

We’re pleased to present the 10th-Annual Windy City Choral Festival, March 16-18, 2017, in Chicago, Illinois, where choirs from across North America will join together to form a large festival chorus to sing under the artistic direction of Dr. Z. Randall Stroope.


Each year, Dr. Stroope leads three days of intense yet highly-educational choral rehearsals to prepare for a musically-thrilling on-stage performance at historic Orchestra Hall at Symphony Center – home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and one of the most stunning concert halls in the world – featuring music composed by the maestro himself.


In addition to being part of the Windy City Festival Chorus, four choirs will be selected by audition to conduct stand-alone performance on stage during the finale concert.


Z. Randall StroopeI have traveled with MCI for several years – both as a director of an ensemble (traveled to China, France, England, and a myriad of other places) and also conducted 17 international festivals for MCI. They are a great company, and I would not have remained in association with them for one moment if not. You will enjoy the organizational aspect of MCI immensely. I invite you to consider them carefully. They will treat your tour like the only one this year they are doing.
