Through its performances for audiences in Chicago, the United States, and abroad, the Chicago Symphony Chorus, under the current leadership of Duain Wolfe, has earned respect, admiration, and critical acclaim as one of the finest symphonic choruses in the world. Since its inception in 1957, the Chicago Symphony Chorus has performed and recorded virtually all of the major works in the choral symphonic repertory, given important world premières, appeared with visiting orchestras, and been a part of many noteworthy milestones in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s history. In celebration of its golden anniversary, the Chicago Symphony Chorus was featured prominently throughout the 2007–2008 season in works such as Ravel’s Daphnis and Chloe, Poulenc’s Gloria, Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms, Mozart’s Mass in C minor, and Berlioz’s Romeo and Juliet. Chicago Symphony Orchestra recordings featuring the Chorus have won nine Grammy® awards for Best Choral Performance. These recordings include Verdi’s Requiem, Beethoven’s Missa solemnis, Bach’s Mass in B minor, and two recordings of Brahms’s A German Requiem.
