The Venice Chorale was first established in 2002 as the concert choir Exsultate! The Mayor of Venice designated Exsultate! as the Chorale of Venice in 2006. Since then, our organization has expanded beyond the concert choir to include the chamber and youth choirs, and a youth string ensemble, and we have become the resident chorale of the Venice Performing Arts Center. The chorale sponsors 5-10 high school students each year in our Apprentice Program, providing a monthly stipend and additional opportunities to perform, such as solos, the chamber choir, and more.
