The Susquehanna Chorale is pleased to announce plans for its 40th anniversary season in 2021-22. We hope you will join us in celebrating!


We have many special events planned:

• The Susquehanna Chorale has commissioned celebrated composer Dan Forrest to write a piece in celebration of the 40th, to be premiered at the 2021 Candlelight Christmas concerts.


The Chorale will issue a “Best Of” recording, featuring our most popular music from the past four decades.


• A special 40th Anniversary Commemoration Book will be published.


• Finally, the season concludes with a grand Celebration Dinner on Sunday, June 5, 2022.


Watch for more information on all of the 40th festivities later this year.
