Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus – December 15, 2013
VALLEY CHORAL SOCIETY
The choir performs music of all styles and genres in at least two major concerts a year in the late fall and in the spring. It has been accompanied by the Choral Arts Society Chamber Orchestra, and in collaborative efforts, by the Upper Perkiomen High School Choirs, the Red Hill Band, and the Bel Canto Children’s Chorus. In addition to the full choir, the Ensemble is a select auditioned group of choir members that performs at concerts and is available to sing for various functions upon request.
The choir has performed at Longwood Gardens and the Pennsylvania State Capital Building, as well as for the Reading Express, Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, and the Philadelphia Phillies. As part of its community outreach, the choir regularly performs at retirement homes throughout the area and at “Make Music Upper Perk.”
In the summer of 2007, members of the choir went on a successful goodwill concert tour of Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic. With renewed enthusiasm and dedication, Valley Choral Society has increased its performances in the Upper Perkiomen community and hopes to expand to surrounding counties and to continue to represent the United States internationally.
Valley Choral Society (formerly The Choral Arts Society of the Upper Perkiomen Valley) was founded by Richard F. Lampe in 1983. Prospective members are asked to sing a range test for placing in the volunteer choir. Ensemble members are asked to audition for the artistic director, singing sight reading examples.
The Valley Choral Society season is split into two, presenting both a winter and spring concert. Be sure to stay up-to-date on where VCS might be next throughout the community!
