Fort Dodge Choral Society is currently celebrating its 49th season. Organized in the spring of 1968 by individuals who were interested in providing an opportunity for the study and performance of challenging sacred and secular choral music compositions; and to participate in the rich cultural environment of the community; Fort Dodge Choral Society is one of the oldest community groups dedicated to the performance of fine choral literature in the state of Iowa.
FDCS frequently collaborates with area ensembles from several different genres. Regular contributors include Jive for Five and music faculty from Drake University. Additionally, the ensemble presents concerts in tandem with the Fort Dodge Area Symphony. Other area collaborations include work with Comedia Musica Players, The King Ringers handbell choir, and children's choirs from Fort Dodge's public and parochial schools. As part of its mission to promote musical excellence in the Fort Dodge area, the society has commissioned and debuted choral works from area composers.
