The Bay Choral Guild is a 40-voice, auditioned chorus based in Palo Alto with singers from around the Bay Area. BCG's outstanding musical ensemble and rich repertoire are the foundation for innovative programs that bring works together in new and unusual ways. Our concerts offer both audiences and singers the opportunity to enjoy fresh and exciting choral music experiences, and balance enjoyment of the music with new insight and understanding.
Experienced singers are cordially invited to audition to join the group. There are openings for all voices!
Founded in 1979, BCG fills an important role in the music culture of the Bay Area, performing choral repertoire that span the twelfth to the twenty-first centuries, drawn from a broad range of musical cultures and a wide variety of musical styles. In addition to well-known choral masterpieces, our concerts regularly include recently-discovered works by less familiar composers, works commissioned by BCG, and premieres of works by contemporary American and San Francisco Bay Area composers, including Sanford Dole, our Artistic Director.
