The show offers attendees an afternoon of delicious food, excellent music, a professional fashion show, and raffle prizes.

This event draws a sell-out crowd of nearly 700 attendees each year. Cocktail hour begins at 11 a.m. At noon, the Choral-Aires Chorus performs, followed by a luncheon and the fashion show.

“We love this annual tradition,” says Chorus President Nancy Smith, of the fashion show. “After our recent success at the Sweet Adelines International Contest, our members are more energized than ever to perform for the home crowd. We are looking forward to this show immensely!”

Women passionate about music are invited to join the Choral-Aires Chorus during weekly rehearsals held each Monday from 7 – 10 p.m., at the Redeemer Lutheran Church Recreation Center (345 S. Kenilworth Avenue, Elmhurst). For more information about joining the Chorus, contact Barb Ehst at 630.204.5188 or barbehst@hotmail.com. 

More than 100 women from Illinois and Wisconsin sing tight harmonies a cappella (without instrumentation) with the Choral-Aires Chorus, the 2012 Lake Michigan Region 3 Champion, and earned eighth place in the world at the 2013 Sweet Adelines International contest. This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency. More information about the Chorus can be found at their website, http://choral-aires.com.
