South Holland Master Chorale grew from a group that began in the early 1970s at what was then Thornton Junior College, later renamed South Suburban College. The Chorale now receives financial support from the Village of South Holland, from which it takes its current name. Over its long existence, the Chorale has performed throughout the Chicago south suburbs and Northwest Indiana, presenting major works both classic and contemporary.
