Making beautiful music for 69 years!

We sing choral classics.

Baroque to 21st-Century, Bach to Rutter, we concentrate on performing full-length pieces from the classical repertoire. We even occasionally commission new works!

Audition to sing with us!

We welcome experienced singers of all ages. Auditions are conducted by our music director just before the first two rehearsals of each semester (i.e., Monday evenings in early September and January), usually at Oakwood Presbyterian Church.

No need to prepare a piece. Just come ready to show off your pitch, tone & musicality.

the State College Choral Society in concert

Concerts 3–4 times a year.
CDs year-round.

We are the largest choral group in State College to perform a classical repertoire. You have two ways to hear the music for yourself: Buy a recording we've made, or even better, attend a local concert.

Hearty thanks to all our supporters!
