The JACOMO Chorale has provided quality music for Jackson County and the surrounding area since 1983. It is a community chorus presenting audiences with a diverse musical experience and providing an enjoyable outlet for choral musicians in eastern Jackson County. It has a rich heritage of music styles and presents concerts each season that include a wide variety of literature.

The Jacomo Chorale performs at a variety of venues in the Kansas City area.

Dr. Helena Vasconcellos, our musical director, has been directing the Chorale for 6 years. We offer an invitation to our supporters of the fine arts and the public here in Jackson County and beyond to come and watch her leads the Chorale in producing a beautiful musical experience. For more detailed information about our musical director, see her biography on the About Us page.


Music lovers and singers of all levels are welcome into the JACOMO Chorale. There will be no formal audition to join the group. Instead, the prospective singers will go through a process of voice placement. In a pleasant atmosphere, the prospective singers will be asked to perform the following tasks:

1. Singing  a tune which he or she feels comfortable, such as a church hymn, a folksong, a bel canto/operatic piece, a jazz standard, or even a popular song.

2. Sing “Happy Birthday” in three different key signatures.

3. Describing his or her level of comfort with written music.

Regardless of the skill level of the prospective singers, they will be invited to attend the first rehearsal in order to have an idea about the pace of practices and the level of expectation on the part of the conductor as well all the other members. Please call Nancy at (816) 355-0114, if you would like to try out and see what it would be like to sing under Jackson County’s best choral director.

    1. Hello Elizabeth,

      Please contact Nancy White, Chorale Manager, at 816-355-0114 or email her @ njwhite1973@gmail.com for details. The Chorale is a community choir group and accepts usually everyone that has already graduated from high school. However, if you are still attending high school, you should still talk with Nancy about your situation. The Chorale is always looking for more singers to enjoy the fun of music.
      I hope that you can get your questions answered from Nancy.

      Phil Henley
