Performers and performances

The Starlite Chorale is a group of performers dedicated to bringing bright, lively music to our audiences. From a broad area of New Jersey (from Bergen County in the north all the way to Burlington County in the south) we gather to rehearse and perform together.

We sing 2 show formats per year: a very traditional “Christmas Show” in the Winter, and a “Great American Songbook” show in the Spring — with a total of about 15 performances each year. A Starlite show typically lasts about one hour, but can be customized to fit your occasion. Shows are accompanied by piano and possibly drums and bass as well.

Funding from our public and professional engagements enable us to sing special concerts for hospitals, senior centers, and extended care facilities. We also sing benefit concerts, which help churches and other charitable organizations raise funds for special projects such as scholarships and medical needs.

We’ve sung at community New Year’s Eve celebrations, Fourth of July shows, Ocean Grove’s Tabernacle, many churches, and in diner parking lots. To say that we enjoy what we do would be absolutely true.
