Carillon Women's Chorale Repertoire

Carillon Women's Chorale explores music from all historical periods and all styles including innovative contemporary sacred and secular works. Our goal is to develop choral professionalism through friendship and the exploration and performance of excellent choral music. We strive to perform with mature, unified and expressive choral tone. In doing so, it is our hope to provide our public audiences the excellent historic and contemporary music literature composed specifically for women's voices. We are especially pleased when we can perform wonderful music written by women composers. The following is a compiled list of literature performed since the founding of Carillon Women's Chorale in 2001.
