The Mon Yough Chorale is a non-sectarian group of singers. We perform for many organizations and municipalities in and around Western Pennsylvania. Anyone wishing to sing is welcome and invited to come to a rehearsal to preview the group prior to committing to the group. No auditions are necessary. Our repertoire consists of many types of music: Patriotic, Broadway Show Tunes, Gospel, Sacred, Baroque, Renaissance, Jazz, Light Tunes, and Holiday, among many others. Give us a try and see for yourself!

In addition to singing locally, we also compete in a yearly competition called Saengerfest held in June each year coordinated by the United Singers Federation of Pennsylvania. Member chorus’ are currently from: Altoona, Williamsport, Reading, Lebanon and Mon Yough. Each chorus hosts the competition on a rotating basis.

Our rehearsals are held each Sunday at Sampson’s Mills Presbyterian Church at 1665 Lincoln Way White Oak, PA 15131.
