North Shore Music Association Enter


Borealis Chorale and Orchestra

For over sixty years, the tradition of community choral and orchestral concerts has flourished in Cook County! Come hear your musically talented friends, family, and neighbors in the Borealis Chorale & Orchestra perform seasonal works by celebrated composers.

Since Ora Wilcox’s Symphonium Music Club began in the 1950s, and was led by B.J. Muss from 1980 to 2010, many talented and devoted members of our community have sustained the fine tradition of choral music here on the North Shore. In 2010, accomplished composer and musician Bill Beckstrand became the group’s director, and its name changed to Borealis Chorale & Orchestra (BCO). Under Bill’s direction, the BCO has continued the treasured tradition of Christmas-season concerts, and in 2011 added an Easter-season concert as well.

In 2013, to expand opportunities for community participation in choral and orchestral music and to establish a firm foundation for its future, BCO became affiliated with the North Shore Music Association.

The importance and value of BCO in our community is clearly revealed in the more than 75 members of our community who contribute their talents as singers and musicians to these productions, devoting 8 weeks of rehearsal for each concert. Its value is also evident in the wide community of appreciators, who by the hundreds eagerly anticipate and attend the concerts each year.
