The Jefferson Choral Society is governed by a Board of Directors, made up of singers and volunteers. Many of our members bring corporate experience to the table to provide oversight and guidance in the operations of the Society. The Society is classified as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The Board believes in total transparency and urges its members to attend their open board meetings. Generally, the board meets four times a year to review their goals and assess overall performance.
To serve the citizens of Central Virginia through the pursuit of artistic excellence in choral performance and repertoire. To enrich the community through a variety of concert programs that showcase masterworks of choral music. To introduce new artists, composers and music to our audiences. To bring together a diversity of persons to foster and share the art of choral music. To provide opportunities for youth and children to develop an appreciation of quality choral music. To make classical choral music accessible to all segments of the population.
