DISCOVER CHORAL MUSIC
Whether you are new to choral music, or a seasoned audience member, the experience is equally moving and inspiring. Choral music, sung by multiple voice parts, combines the vocal qualities of many singers seamlessly coming together as one voice and becomes transcendental when a chorus gives everything it can in each precise moment.
MEET THE CONDUCTOR
The 2021-2022 Season marks Jo Anne Wasserman’s 29th year as Artistic Director and Conductor of the Santa Barbara Choral Society. We thought we’d share a few things about her that you might not be aware of.
MEET THE CHORUS
The oldest of Santa Barbara’s community performing arts organizations, the Santa Barbara Choral Society is a semi-professional chorus comprised of about 80 auditioned singers from the Santa Barbara area.
“Something magical happens when some 80 voices come together in song. Socially and emotionally…it’s a fullfilling experience like no other. In a word: uplifting!”

THE CHORAL SOCIETY
Individual donations make up more than 50% of our budget. Your generous support keeps the song alive.

Auditions are ongoing for our 2021-2022 Season. Join our chorus for performances that will feature music by Duruflé, Handel, Lauridsen, Tin, Vaughan Williams, and the Beatles!
We celebrate the joy of choral music, performing classical masterpieces and exciting modern works. There’s something for everyone.
