Extraordinary Music During Extraordinary Times

Who could possibly have foreseen what this year would bring: a global pandemic, communities in turmoil, and most recently, fire. Like many performing arts organizations, SJSC faces new challenges and uncertainties.

As different as this time is, one thing remains constant: the importance of music in our lives, and our ability to connect to each other through its power and beauty.

We are so grateful to our members for their resilience and patience as we navigate new ways to sing together, and to our larger community who have supported us, and reached out during these months of sheltering.

Though we cannot be together in person right now, the energy of Fall and our Season 97 is upon us, and we look forward to connecting with you online, bringing music into all our lives, as we have done for nearly 100 years.

Thank You!

""What a rare gift to be able to bring art to life, and to share consistently excellent quality music in our community. The San Jose Symphonic Choir's invaluable contributions inspired me to help ensure that the work of these "ordinary people" reaches wider audiences for 
years to come."
