The Symphonic Chorale of Southwest Florida is a highly select, auditioned professional core chorus under the artistic direction of conductor Dr. Trent Brown. Our members come from Fort Myers, Naples, Bonita Springs, Cape Coral, and surrounding areas.
We incorporated in 2011 although we have a long legacy in Fort Myers with roots dating back to the formation of the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra Chorus in1962. In our inaugural season, 2011-2012, we established ourselves as an independent and vital part of the local Arts scene; however, we remain the resident chorus of the SWFLSO, Lee County’s only professional orchestra.
The Symphonic Chorale’s mission is to develop and promote public appreciation of choral music through the presentation of concerts of the highest possible artistic standards, to educate its audiences and musician members in choral repertoire of all periods suited for a symphonic chorus, and to provide opportunities for talented area singers to work together through rehearsal and public concerts to develop their singing techniques, their performance skills, and their creative choral artistry in the interpretation of challenging and significant choral literature.
