Choir performance with orchestra


San Diego Festival Chorus

The Chorus has been performing choral classics and masterworks as well as popular  contemporary music since 2001. We welcome you to join our friendly group with the reward of learning and performing challenging and beautiful music.

Two major performances are featured each year, in May and in December.  Our audiences number up to 1200 in a beautiful venue.  There are 80 singers with a full orchestra and featured soloists from the greater San Diego area as well as selected members of the Chorus.  Chorus performances also include outreach concerts and travel tours.
