Symphonic Chorale of Southwest Florida
The Symphonic Chorale of Southwest Florida is a highly select, auditioned professional core chorus under the artistic direction of conductor Dr. Trent Brown. Our members come from Fort Myers, Naples, Bonita Springs, Cape Coral, and surrounding areas. The Symphonic Chorale’s mission is to develop and promote public appreciation of choral music through the concerts of the highest possible artistic standards, to educate its audiences and musician members in choral repertoire of all periods suited for a symphonic chorus, and to provide opportunities for talented area singers to work together through performances, and creative choral artistry in the interpretation of challenging and significant choral literature. The Chorale incorporated in 2011, with roots dating back to the formation of the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra Chorus in1962. In our inaugural season (2011-2012) the Chorale was established as an independent and vital part of the local Arts scene, and remained the resident chorus of the SWFLSO, Lee County’s only professional orchestra.
