Vallejo Choral Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit performing arts organization whose mission is to foster a vibrant, diverse, and interactive choral community, educate our singers and audiences, and extend our reach to youth through our Student Scholarships and Campanelli Youth Chorus.
In good times, Vallejo Choral Society produces outstanding concerts and gives its singers enriching opportunities to perform choral masterpieces, and in tough times, VCS keeps its extended choral community united, inspired, singing, and learning through innovative programming.
During the height of the COVID Pandemic, VCS launched unique 12-week virtual programs that culminated in livestreamed concerts of Bach and Handel masterworks. In December 2021, the Choral Society made a triumphant return to live performances with concerts featuring Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols, followed by a rousing season finale with Orff’s Carmina Burana, set poetically among rows of whisky barrels at a Mare Island distillery.
For its 105th season, Vallejo Choral Society presented December concerts featuring Eleanor Daley’s Requiem. In March 2023, VCS held a successful Spring Gala that included a set of Central and South American choral works, followed by a popular Spring Vocal Workshop with an esteemed guest choral clinician. To complete the season, the 50-member Choral Society produced two extraordinary performances of J.S. Bach’s monumental St. Matthew Passion with Baroque orchestra and renowned guest soloists, presented at St. Dominic’s in Benicia and the Empress Theatre in Vallejo.
