Western Reserve Chorale

Artistic Director: David Gilson

Executive Director and Accompanist: Joanne Poderis


THE WESTERN RESERVE CHORALE (WRC) is in its twenty-second season as a non-profit group of amateur and professional singers.  Our aim is to provide free high-quality performances of choral music for the enjoyment of residents of Greater Cleveland.   WRC typically presents three choral concerts each year.   As a new venture in 2012-13, the 2nd and 3rd concerts were presented twice, in different locations in our goal to widen our audience.   We also continue our community service though concerts at local retirement homes, which in recent years have included Judson Manor, Judson Park, the McGregor Home, The Renaissance and Hamlet Village.
