Coriolis was founded by Gregg Skalinder in 1987 to bring together skilled amateur singers who share a passion for compelling a cappella repertoire and ensemble singing.
Coriolis repertoire covers a broad range of styles and musical eras, and the group has a special affinity for contemporary and 20th century composers and both American and British choral traditions.
Coriolis members come to the ensemble from a variety of careers: business professional to educator, tech talent to professional musician, property manager to non-profit leader, college student to retiree. The group strives to create and share beauty with one another across multiple generations (singer ages span a range of 50+ years) and with the ensemble's supportive audience.
Coriolis singers have performed with community, volunteer, collegiate, and professional chamber choirs, chorales, and vocal ensembles in Chicago, the midwest, and across the United States.
