Dubuque Chorale

The Dubuque Chorale, Cadenza, and Children’s Choir perform a concert of classical music with orchestral accompaniment. The Chorale is pleased to be joined by the following regional high school choirs:

  • Maquoketa
  • Monticello
  • Western Dubuque
  • Cuba City, WI
  • Marquette Catholic


The concert begins with Beethoven’s Mass in C Major, a work commissioned by Prince Nikolaus Esterházy II in 1807. The work features the Chorale, four soloists, and orchestra. Although performed infrequently today, the mass is appreciated by critics as a “long-underrated masterpiece.”

The second half of the concert includes a variety of classical pieces, including Ralph Vaugahn William’s Serenade to Music and a set by the Children’s Choir. The concert concludes with a mass choir performance of Haydn’s Te Deum.


Tickets are $10. To purchase tickets for the Saturday performance in Dubuque, call the Heritage Center box office weekdays 10am to 5pm at 563-585-SHOW (7469), or visit their website here . Tickets for Sunday’s performance will be available at the door.
