About the Windsor Symphony Orchestra Chorus
The Windsor Symphony Orchestra Chorus (WSOC) is an auditioned volunteer choral ensemble of approximately 65 members, under the direction of Dr. Bruce J. G. Kotowich, chorusmaster, whose repertoire covers many of the masterpieces of choral/orchestral music. The chorus performs three to four times a year with the Windsor Symphony Orchestra (WSO) in everything from Holiday Pops to Classics and Baroque concerts. The Chorus has also presented extra concerts independently from the WSO, including Mozart’s Requiem, Ola Gjeilo’s Sunrise Mass, and Alexander’s Feast.
In 1988 the WSOC was formed, bringing together singers from Windsor and Essex County. Past directors have included Richard Householder, Katherine Fitzgibbons, Ronald Bemrich, Timothy Shantz, Jeffrey Walker, and Joel Tranquilla. Singers come together on a weekly basis to rehearse and perform the great choral/orchestral works of the past and present.
