THE WESTERN RESERVE CHORALE (WRC) is in its twenty-third 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.   in the last three seasons, the 2nd and 3rd concerts were/are being presented twice, in different locations, in efforts 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.
