If you are interested in joining the West Chester Area Community Chorus, we accept new members during the first two months of each season. During September and October and then in February and March. Simply come out to any rehearsal during those months and sign up!! Make sure you check our schedule page for details on our rehearsal location for that week.
We accept singers of all voice parts and levels. There are never any auditions but we do request membership dues of $15 per concert season to help purchase new music and cover operational costs.
In the meantime…….

The West Chester Area Community Chorus
The West Chester Area Community Chorus began in 1996 with a group of 28 singers at our first rehearsal, quickly grew to over 60 for our first concert and are now over 160 members. We do not require auditions so we have all levels of singers in our group. Our only requirements are that you are out of high school, enjoy singing and want to have a good time.
Our season runs during the school year from September to May and we typically perform two concerts each year, one in January and one in May, at which, we present a variety of musical genres in our concerts. Everything from classic choral pieces to Broadway show music, pop songs, spirituals, folk music, men’s and women’s ensemble pieces and more.
We also do community appearances such as singing the National Anthem at a Philadelphia Phillies or Wilmington Blue Rocks game. We have also performed at the West Chester Olde Fashioned Christmas and local retirement communities during the past season. On several occasions, we have had the privilege on Veterans Day to perform during the Military Order of the World Wars service at the Washington Chapel on the VF National Park grounds. All of these performances/activities are voluntary and as a member of the group you are welcome to sing at any or all of these venues.
We rehearse primarily at West Chester East High School on Monday evenings from 7:00-9:00 PM and we typically perform our concerts at East High School. When the high school is not available to us, we use alternate rehearsal locations.
We request dues of $15 per concert season(or $25 for the full year) to help us offset music purchases and other operational costs.
We look forward to seeing you at a rehearsal or concert in the near future!
