SFVMC wishes to highlight the unique emotional capability of human voices raised together in song to unify and uplift our community in the San Fernando Valley.

Statement of  Objective


The San Fernando Valley Master Chorale was formed to provide singers and instrumentalists with an opportunity to perform great masterworks of classical to modern choral music.  In doing so, an awareness of the importance of the arts will be heightened in the community by interaction between the Chorale and local residents. Our hope is to inspire both performers and audiences alike to appreciate and enhance their aesthetic enjoyment of the arts.


Our vision is to develop a strong musical organization that performs great works on a regular basis and create goodwill in the community.


By periodically engaging the services of guest directors and premiering original works by resident composers, the Chorale hopes to achieve recognition from the greater San Fernando Valley community as a leading choral organization in the performance of time-honored and new works.  Individuals in the organization can expect opportunities to develop and enhance leadership skills through Advisory Board and committee participation. They will also experience personal growth by participating in community service projects.
