Since 1974, the Dudley Birder Chorale of St. Norbert College has set the standard for Chorale excellence in its performance of great masterworks from Renaissance to jazz, and from gospel to venturesome new music. 

With 150 mixed voices, the Chorale’s membership ranges in age from 15 through seniors. Members of the chorale come from more than 30 communities in northeast Wisconsin. Named for its dynamic founder, Dudley Birder, known to many as Green Bay's “Music Man,” the chorale builds upon a long and distinguished tradition of Chorale music at St. Norbert College.

The Chorale performs three to four concerts annually, including regular concerts with the Green Bay Symphony, bringing its artistry to thousands of Wisconsin residents each year. Many people experience the Chorale through its annual All Saints Day Concert at St. Norbert College’s Walter Theatre or the Holiday Pops Concert at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts. 

The Chorale routinely attracts internationally acclaimed soloists to the region.
