"We've tried to perform the best of chorale music that's out there in the best possible way," said artistic director Roger Duffer, who helped found the group in 1980.
He and associate director and accompanist Melva Morrison are the chorale's only paid members.
"The bottom line is our members do a lot," Duffer said. "We're not part of a school or organization, which some groups like us are."
The chorale has had up to 80 members and currently has around 65, Duffer said. For the last 20 years the chorale has rehearsed at First United Methodist Church on Olive Avenue and Cajon Street, and the church is known for its acoustics, he said.
Most of the works the chorale performs are from the Baroque and Classical periods, written for smaller orchestras and chamber groups, Duffer said. If they do Romantic-era works like Brahms' "Requiem" or Beethoven's 9th Symphony - which they have, Duffer said - they are with a symphony orchestra, often the Redlands Symphony, he said.
"We feel not only the singers like to perform different kinds of music but the audience likes to hear different kinds of music," said Duffer, professor emeritus at Riverside Community College and director of music ministries at First United Methodist.
Duffer holds the chorale to high standards, DeZon said.
Duffer said members are the backbone. They come from as far as Hemet, the Banning area, Ontario, mountain communities and Riverside. One member from Big Bear has had to stay overnight in winter, he said.
