The Temecula Valley Symphony Chorus was formed in 2015 as part of the vision of Maestro John Mario and Symphony President Alana Joos to broaden the organization’s musical offerings. Over the summer the Chorus was established, Eric Rea was brought on board to direct, and two months later the chorus of 40 singers appeared in concert with the Symphony.
The chorus has continued to grow, and our regular season now consists of two performances with the Temecula Valley Symphony, including masterworks (such as selections from Bach’s B-Minor Mass, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, and Mozart’s Requiem) and an annual holiday concert. In addition, we enjoy presenting several stand-alone concerts of chamber choir music of all genres.
We rehearse on Monday evenings, from 7:15 to 9:30, at Murrieta Springs Seventh Day Adventist Church. Our regular season runs from mid-August to mid-May. We actively recruit singers throughout the year, and hold auditions by appointment.
Temecula Valley Symphony Chorus exists to advance the mission of the Symphony by enhancing its programming with excellent, varied, and engaging symphonic choral works. In addition, the chorus seeks to bring to our community greater awareness and enjoyment of the choral arts by presenting high-quality, diverse, and vibrant chamber concerts. The chorus aspires to become one of the premier choral organizations in Southern California by attracting and developing gifted singers through a warm, challenging, and fun rehearsal environment and a variety of performance experiences.
