Virginia Choristers

The Virginia Choristers offer an inspirational choral music experience for youth ages six to seventeen. Singers are challenged to attain choral excellence, develop musicianship skills and confidence in their ability to express themselves through the beauty of music. Past seasons included performances in Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City, tours in Canada and Europe, and numerous local performances and collaborations with other musical ensembles. Most recently, The Virginia Choristers made their Carnegie Hall debut in a sold-out feature performance at Weil Recital Hall in New York City.  Summer 2017 highlights include a tour of The United Kingdom.
