2021-22 Season

Safe, In-Person, and Distanced Community Singing!

Now entering its 20th season, the Santa Cruz Peace Chorale joyfully announces a return to in-person singing on Monday evenings beginning in September.  We would love to see you there!

Our first rehearsal:  Monday, September 13th at 6:30 pm

We do not hold auditions, but this year we have two important requirements:

  1. Proof of covid vaccination shown in advance of your first rehearsal – no exceptions.
  2. Purchase and wearing of a special singer’s mask as per CDC and county emergency orders.

For more information on ordering a Singer’s Mask and providing vaccination proof, or for other questions, please email:  avandlt@cruzio.com

Member dues for the season generally run on a flexible sliding scale from $225-$350 per season, with payments made monthly, quarterly or yearly.  No one is turned away due to finances.  All dues cover our modest operating expenses: music director, accompanist, sheet music, venue rental, and promotional materials.

Come sing with us and experience the joy of making harmony with other voices once again!

Great Songs – Great People – Great Harmony

Our Mission

  • To promote local and worldwide peace and social justice through singing
  • To enlighten as well as to entertain

Our Activities

Our interests are many, and our repertoire is diverse.  We sing songs of peace, justice and labor and aim to boost morale and inspire.  In the words of one choir director, we celebrate “the full cup of life: birth, death, joy, sorrow, struggle, triumph, work, play, love, and community!”

Our mixed-voice community chorus presents one major concert each year in addition to singing at community events, soup kitchens, and street demonstrations.  Our chorus is open to all singers in September and is run by our members.  There are no auditions.

Our Enrollment Period

Anyone interested in joining our chorus is invited to attend our September rehearsals without charge to learn more about us before making a commitment for the current season.

Our Support

Our activities and expenses are supported by season-long member pledges.  No one is turned away due to finances.  A silent auction and one other fundraising event are held each season.  Donations to our chorus of $100 or more are tax deductible.
