Ordinary People Making Extraordinary Music
in our 98th Season: Rising

The San José Symphonic Choir has been making music in and for the community since 1924 and now in our 98th Season, we are Rising to the excitement and anticipation of our 100th Season!

What started as a small collection of local volunteer singers is now an impressive group of 100 members – all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds who believe Music is a Basic Need We ALL Have.

So much has changed in our world yet our gift of sharing music, performed Live in Concert with orchestras and remarkable soloists, continues to be very powerful!

Would you consider a contribution to support making live Choral Music accessible, felt and heard – for SJSC to continue as part of the cultural fabric of our home city, San José?
