San Jose Symphonic Choir is a volunteer choral society of over 100 voices, performing choral masterworks and contemporary pieces under the inspiring leadership of Maestro Leroy Kromm. Upcoming performances in the 2018-19 season will include Puccini’s lovely and rarely-heard Messa di Gloria, Johann Hummel’s exciting Mass in D Major, Mendelssohn’s choral symphony, the No. 2 (“Lobgesang”), and of course our festive annual You-Sing-It Messiah.

Throughout our 90+ years, we have maintained a strong connection with our community, performing in local venues with other local musicians and creating a musical community for our members. The Choir promotes performances of works by local composers, especially those that address societal issues.

2019 Annual Giving Campaign – Help Us Transform Our Community

We invite you to think about the transformative powers of music and its ability to impact us deeply.  How often do we have the opportunity to leave behind our hectic and challenging lives, and drink in one celebratory moment?  The power – the electricity of live performance – is precisely why your support is so important.  You can help us transform more lives in our Silicon Valley community with music.  Please support us with a donation.

Thank you for helping us attain our goal, which enables us to pay our basic annual operating expenses.  Every dollar beyond our stated goal enables us to dream artistically of new ways to spread happiness in our community.

“What people are really seeking is hope and faith in something above and beyond what they see happening around them. Beautiful music brings the true and honest spirit of hope, as it has through the ages, and will through time eternal, into our souls, and satisfies the hungry heart.”
Maestro Kromm
Director of Music
