Valley Choral Society (Choir)

Founded: 1983 - Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, USA

Valley Choral Society (= VCS), Patricia D. Conrad, Artistic Director and Conductor, was founded by Richard F. Lampe in 1983. Valley Choral Society (formerly The Choral Arts Society of the Upper Perkiomen Valley) is an auditioned volunteer choir relying primarily upon amateur singers and is an outgrowth of community interest in quality choral music.

The choir, made up of singers from Montgomery, Bucks, Berks, and Lehigh counties, performs music of all styles and genres in at least two major concerts a year in the late fall and in the spring. It has been accompanied by the Choral Arts Society Chamber Orchestra, and in collaborative efforts, by the Red Hill Band, and the Bel Canto Children’s Chorus. In addition to the full choir, the Ensemble is a select auditioned group of choir members that performs at concerts and is available to sing for various functions upon request.

The choir has performed at Longwood Gardens and the Pennsylvania State Capital Building, as well as for the Reading Express and the Philadelphia Phillies. As part of its community outreach, the choir regularly performs at retirement homes throughout the area and at the Upper Perkiomen Relay for Life.

In the summer of 2007, members of the choir went on a successful goodwill concert tour of Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic. With renewed enthusiasm and dedication, Valley Choral Society has increased its performances in the Upper Perkiomen community and hopes to expand to surrounding counties and to continue to represent the USA internationally.
