Apollo Chorus of Chicago Performs for Hundreds

The Apollo Chorus, known for its annual performances of Handel’s Messiah in Chicago every holiday, performed its annual fall preview concert to an audience of 700 at the College’s Ozinga Chapel on November 4.

The chorus performs the free preview concert each year, and Trinity was pleased to provide the venue. Apollo performed selections from Handel’s Messiah, movements from Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass, and pieces by American composers such as Rene Clausen and Moses Hogan.

“This was a great event,” said Dr. Helen Van Wyck, professor of music at the College. “We were glad to receive a group with such a long and distinguished history. The chorus has a large following in the south suburbs, and it was a pleasure to welcome Apollo and the chorus’s admirers to Trinity’s campus.”

Trinity alumna Lindsey Kuhn ’06 of Homer Glen, Illinois, is a new member of the chorus.

“Trinity’s music program and campus is full of people who really love and appreciate music, and it really means a lot to me to perform one of my first concerts as an Apollo member at the school that really helped me grow as a singer.”
