Our History

The North Port Chorale was founded by Bruce Robinson on February 27, 1980.  It became an official organization in 1982 with the election of officers.  Hoping to provide a musical outlet for area residents the Chorale has continued to grow through the successive directorships of Marion and William Pinkow, Pat Prentzel, and Jeffery Herbert.  The North Port Chorale strives to serve its community with pride and excellence.  In its beginnings, performances were held in available venues including the Port Charlotte Cultural Center.  Today the North Port Chorale calls the beautiful North Port Performing Arts Center as its home for rehearsals and performances.  Here it continues to serve the North Port community with stellar performances and opportunities.
