The North Shore Choral Society is a not-for-profit community chorus which has served this area for over seventy-five years, giving many hundreds of non-professional singers the opportunity to perform choral masterworks, both classical and contemporary. The NSCS is a member of the Illinois Arts Alliance and is partially supported by grants from the Illinois Arts Council, an agency of the State of Illinois.
Principal support, however, comes from individual and corporate sponsors as well as ticket sales. Your contribution, large or small, is important. Please consider becoming a sponsor of the North Shore Choral Society.
