Since its beginning in 1939 as a 28-member all-male choir, The Louisville Chorus has grown steadily to a 50-voice chorus showcasing both men and women singers. Richard Sowers is the music director and conductor.

The Louisville Chorus is dedicated to the premise that great music can be found in many kinds of musical styles ranging from requiem masses, English and Italian madrigals and oratories, to the vast variety of secular choral literature, including 20th century music, blues and jazz, musical comedy and popular standards.
