Welcome to the City of South Burlington, VT Community Chorus.  The South Burlington Community Chorus was founded in 1973. There are no auditions to join our Chorus. Anyone can join from anywhere! The only requirements are the ability to match pitch, desire and willingness to learn, have fun and be committed to helping our Chorus be a vibrant and quality group. 

We believe singing is good for your health, spirit and well-being. Singing is a wonderful, uplifting way to communicate and connect with those in our community and beyond. We strive for excellence in our performances and enjoy making wonderful music accessible to our friends and neighbors for a reasonable price.  We are a Non-Profit organization, dedicated to providing an opportunity to all who have the desire to come and SING with us!

We want to thank everyone who helped make our recent Holiday performance- Frost in the Air -such a success!  We had a fantastic concert back on Saturday, December 3rd over at McCarthy Arts.  We wish to thank all of our dedicated singers, our appreciative audience, our wonderful Director Matt LaRocca, and Accompanist Shirley Smith, the City of South Burlington Recreation & Parks Department, Saint Michael’s College, Tenth Crow Creative, UVM Print & Mail, the South Burlington Other Paper, Seven Days, and all of the community it takes to support bringing creative choral arts to the greater community!
