Welcome to the official website of the Choral Arts Society of Southeastern Wisconsin. We invite you to share the passion!

CAS is an auditioned volunteer community chorus of over 60 members founded in 1987. We are proud to offer four major concert programs each season. These include a wide range of musical periods and styles. Explore our website, sign up for our e-mail list, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and most importantly, join us for a concert.

The Better Together concert has been rescheduled to Saturday, June 4, 2022, 7:00 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church of Racine.

The Choral Arts Society exists to celebrate the human spirit through music. And it is in that spirit of respect and dignity that we strongly state our support for social justice. We stand with our community and other arts organizations to acknowledge the costs of systemic racism to us all. We affirm the power of the arts to be both windows and mirrors of the human story. We commit ourselves to using our art form in new ways as we live our mission with increasing understanding, inclusiveness, and empathy. Cornel West says, “Justice is what love looks like in public.” We say, “Singing with love births a more just world.”

The Choral Arts Society Board of Directors with special thanks to Patricia Badger
