Lynn Sjolund meant the world to so many singers, former students, and colleagues here in the Rogue Valley, our homes, and our lives have been enriched by his love and compassion for the arts and each of us as people. He cared deeply for those that crossed his path.


For more than 40 years, the Rogue Valley Chorale has been at the heart of the arts scene in Southern Oregon. We are grateful to our many loyal supporters, without whom we could not have reached our current level of excellence. Contributions are the lifeblood of arts organizations, and the Chorale is no exception. Financial support is essential to the Chorale’s ability to enrich the lives of our Rogue Valley audiences. We sincerely appreciate your support.
