     For fifty-eight years, the Mt. Lebanon-based, 90-voice South Hills Chorale has been entertaining thousands of people and hundreds of organizations in Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania.  Each year the Chorale performs two major concerts in December and May and several community concerts for meetings, conventions, senior citizen, and social groups.

     The Chorale's broad-based repertoire includes American classics, Broadway, pops, spirituals, old favorites, classical, sacred, and holiday works.  There is a music style for everyone at a Chorale concert.  The Chorale is under the direction of our very talented Music Director, Phillip R. Aley.  Phil took the reigns from Henry D. Monsch Jr. when "Hank" retired after 50 years of directorship and Phil continues the music traditions started when the Chorale was formed fifty-eight years ago.  The Chorale is also under the direction of Skylar Bunk as Assistant Director.

     The group has shared the stage with many well-known international soloists, Pittsburgh soloists and instrumental groups.  Notable recent performances include a Memorial Day concert at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. with soloist Irish tenor Anthony Kearns, two major works by Beethoven and Hanson with the Pittsburgh Civic Orchestra, Rutter's Magnificat with the Pittsburgh Philharmonic Orchestra, and selected numbers with the River City Brass Band.  The Chorale has also performed with other great groups such as the Mt. Lebanon High School Percussion Ensemble and the Keystone Oaks Steel Drum Band.

   A major factor contributing to the Chorale's success is the dedication of its professional staff, board, and singing members. More than half the members have been participating for ten or more years.  New singing members are welcome to audition as we are always lookng for new talent to join us.

    We strive to ensure that our facilities and programs are accessible to people with disabilities.  The facilities in which we hold events are wheel chair accessible (including general access and restrooms).  Please contact our Accessibility Coordinator, Karen Christensen, regarding your needs and questions at 412 220-4227 or
