The South Burlington Community Chorus is an SATB chorus that was founded in 1976 and is partially funded by the South Burlington Recreation Department. There are no auditions to join our Chorus, and you do not have to be a South Burlington resident to join. However, there are some requirements needed to join us. Requirements to join will be listed on our website during the registration period each spring and fall. The SBCC strives to create a community of singers who are committed to supporting one another to learn more about singing, have fun, and provide our audiences with quality performances.

Our Director is Erik Kröncke and our accompanist is Mary Jane Austin. To read more about us visit the ‘About Us‘ page!

Chorus is currently on hiatus for the summer. We will begin our fall semester sometime in September, so please check back in late summer for updates!

Our “A Spring Concert” was on Saturday, May 6th. You can hear a recording of “A Spring Concert” on this page.

Thank you to our Director, Eric Krönke and our Collaborative Accompanist, Mary Jane Austin, for everything they do and for their patience as we polished our German pronunciation! A special thanks to Mary Jane for doing double duty in several rehearsals. Erik and Mary Jane are a superb team and we are happy to be learning from them.

Thank you to all of our singers, for your hard work, good humor, camaraderie, and perseverance. We look forward to singing together again in our fall term!

Our Spring Concert was dedicated to the memory of Karleen I. “Kris” Teply. (March 12th, 1944 – February 13th, 2023.)

Kris was the Director of the South Burlington Community Chorus for 33 years, which she founded in 1976 under the auspices of the South Burlington Recreation Department. We are indebted to Kris for establishing the SBCC that carries on to this day in the spirit of bringing musical joy to chorus members and audiences alike.
