MLK Community Chorus

The Martin Luther King Jr. Community Chorus is a volunteer community chorus assembled each year since 1989 to sing as part of The Cleveland Orchestra's annual MLK Celebration Concert.  Bringing together singers from across Northeast Ohio, the Chorus lifts its collective voices in affirmation of Dr. King's vision of justice, peace, and human harmony.  First assembled by Alvin Parris, the Chorus has been prepared and assembled by William Henry Caldwell for the past decade.

Membership each year in the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Chorus is open to singers from throughout Northeast Ohio, with a requirement to attend all rehearsals in January.
