Music is an integral part of our daily lives. We listen to music at sporting events, in restaurants, in our cars…virtually everywhere, but unlike viewing a work of visual art, music requires a performer, someone to interpret a work of music and present to an audience. For nearly ninety years, the Virginia
Choral Society has been presenting choral music to the Tidewater area.
The mission of the chorus is two-fold. First, to provide an exceptional musical experience for the community by performing concerts in local venues with affordable ticket prices to encourage those that might not otherwise be interested in attending. And secondly, to provide an exceptional musical experience for those with musical talent that want to join together to learn about and sing choral music. By holding down the cost of joining as much as possible, the Virginia Choral Society can offer this experience to a wide spectrum of talented singers.
To provide choral singing in the Tidewater area at the lowest cost, we look to our patrons for support. Please think about giving to the Virginia Choral Society. If your interest in the Chorus is inspired by one of our fine singers, be sure to include their name with your donation.
Names of persons who contribute $25.00 or more are invited to be listed in VCS concert programs.

Every time you come to a concert (or sell tickets to a concert), buy one of our fundraising items, or become a member of the choir, you are supporting the mission of the Virginia Choral Society. Thank you!
The endowment fund is based on the principal being invested and inviolate for expenses. Only the earnings from this fund can be used for operating expenses. The endowment fund is managed by trustees named by the Board of Directors, who report to the Board annually on the status of the endowment.
A gift to the endowment fund has the advantage of never being used up. Over time, earnings on the principal will far outweigh the value of the initial gift. Proceeds from the invested principal will initially supplement income from other sources. The Board of Directors hopes that in time the growth of the endowment will continue to grow in size and contributors support to greatly strengthen the Virginia Choral Society. To our many contributors, VCS is gratefully thankful for your support during the many years.
