For More Information

 Welcome
 The Western New York Chorale is in its 20th season of presenting highly-acclaimed performances of both early and contemporary music. We invite you to join us for evenings of little heard early music. The membership of the Chorale includes librarians, mathematicians, biologists, clergy, and child-care workers who share an interest in early music and singing in a small ensemble.
 The Chorale is one of only two community-based choral ensembles in this area which regularly perform music from the pre-medieval through the 18th century - the time frame identified as "early music". Why specialize in early music? It is the foundation upon which later music has built. The composers of those early centuries invented and developed the basic rules of music theory and harmonywhich are the roots of all Western music up to the present time-- even the most avant garde. Beyond its historical inportance, though, performers and audiences alike continue to find a freshness, a clarity, a certain luminosity, in its logical structures, from the simplest medieval chant to the complexity of the polyphony of Bach, or Byrd, or Palestrina -- or Josquin.
