The Village Voices Chorale

Spring Concert - 2015

Village Voices Gives $17,900 to Local Schools and Student Vocalists

The Village Voices Chorale gave $17,900 in grants to 35 elementary schools and scholarships to 9 local college students in 2013 and 2014., and over $148,000 since FY2000!

Because the members of the chorale love to sing, and know well the benefits of singing, they began years ago to promote vocal programs in local elementary schools.  The chorale performs two concerts a year and uses the proceeds to give grants to the schools for such items as buying or tuning pianos, purchasing music, or even providing transportation for a chorus to a local district musical program.

Serious college vocal students are also encouraged through scholarships, and member of the Chorale would be happy to tell you of several such students who are now entertaining audiences worldwide.

A local school's chorus and one of this year's scholarship winners were guest performers at the Village Voices Spring concert.

Our Season

The VILLAGE VOICES CHORALE is a spirited community chorus for adults who love to sing. Directed by Gloria Hilliard and accompanied by Christine DeKlotz, the 60+ voice chorale delights its listeners with a wide variety of music from Classical to Broadway and Contemporary. Founded in 1969 as a non-profit organization, the Village Voices Chorale makes financial contributions to support vocal school music programs and provides scholarships to students majoring in voice.  

We rehearse in Westlake Village, California, and perform primarily at the Scherr Forum Theatre, in the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza.

On The Road

The Village Voices have spread their love of singing across America and the world, from singing the Faure Requiem under John Rutter at New York City's Carnegie Hall in 2001 to our international tours and performances.  In 2011, the Village Voices traveled to France, where we sang in Paris, Chartres, and Nice.

Auditions

The Village Voices Chorale announces open auditions beginning June 11, 2013 for its Fall Concert season. Interested men and women singers from throughout Ventura County and LA County may call (818) 889 -1619 for an audition appointment. Choral singing experience and good sight-reading skills are a plus. The group rehearses on Tuesday nights in Westlake Village.
