The Lockport Chorale is an adult singing group established in 1982 by Charles Green.  Mr. Green directed the group for 19 years, performing a wide variety of sacred and popular music.

Kristen Hill is the current Director of the Chorale.  She is a music teacher at St. Andrews School in Kenmore, NY.  Accompanist for the Chorale is Deborah Hutter, a Lockport City School music teacher.

Currently, the group consists of about 40 able SATB singers who enjoy challenging materials and new musical experiences.  Although the group is centered in Lockport, members come from all over the Western New York area.  Repertoire covers a broad range of music, from the classical sacred pieces to Broadway tunes, light jazz and standards.  The selections are made with an eye to stretching the abilities of the group, and providing challenging opportunities for the singers.  The Chorale also has performed jointly with various church choirs and other choral groups, the Festival Chorus, the Lockport Community Band, The Easy Street Band, the Lockport High School Show Choir and the Niagara Catholic Choir.

Rehearsals are held Tuesday nights from 7 to 9 PM at Christ Episcopal Church, Lockport, at 7145 Fieldcrest Drive at Route 31, from September through December and February through May.  A holiday concert in December and a spring concert in May as well as performances at local nursing homes and special events are usually scheduled each year.
