SJSC Christmas caroling at a rehabilitation facility.
SJSC’s repertoire is drawn from the canon of choral masterworks, including music written hundreds of years ago as well as contemporary pieces. It includes works that are rarely performed, such as Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem, or Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, and works that are little known, such as Johann Hummel’s Mass in D. SJSC is proud to present, and sometimes premieres the works of local composers, helping to support the vibrant community of musicians in our area. Debut concerts have included works by South Bay composers Craig Bohmler, Dale Victorine, Sondra Clark, and Henry Mollicone. We regularly present free community concerts, and collaborate with other local musical groups.
SJSC happily represents the City of San José and the South Bay area in national and international tours that take place every two to four years during the summer.
