Claremont Chorale Established in 1968 as the Lincoln Twenty Chorale under Chris Trussel, the Claremont Chorale today is comprised of approximately fifty volunteer singers from all walks of life who rehearse together weekly.  The Chorale serves the community by performing a series of concerts each season and through educational outreach.  Over its nearly four decades of singing the choir has presented a diverse, international repertoire embracing music from the past five centuries as well as music of our time.  Thei concerts encompass major works with full orchestra, instrumental ensemble and acappella.  The Chorale has sung under the direction of Gregory Norton since 1993.
