Who Are We?
The Schuylkill Choral Society is an 80-100 voice auditioned choir that has been giving quality professional vocal concerts to the residents of Schuylkill County since 1973. Our membership age spans from high school students to retirees.
We are a volunteer chorus with 3 paid professionals on our music staff. We perform 4 concerts a year; 2 Christmas concerts in early December another in March and a final one in early May.
Our music spans pieces from the great master composers of Europe to jazz to country to rock and roll.
The Schuylkill Choral Society does presentations for the community such as The Relay for Life, national anthem at games and various other community efforts when needed.
The chorus is led by 3 professional musicians. Dr. Mark P. Thomas has been our Music Director-Conductor since 1986 and is music director at Upper Perkiomen School District. He is assisted by our Assistant Director Dave Watson who has been with the Chorus since it's inception and Music Director at Pine Grove Area School District for 35 years. Our accompanist Kimberly Breiner Stoudt is a graduate of Moravian College in Bethlehem with a Bachelor degree in Music and has been with the Chorus since 1989.
Today the Schuylkill Choral Society continues its original credo of promoting cultural growth in its community. Beyond that, the group has begun to surpass that credo to become one of the most recognizable choral society's in Pennsylvania.
