The Jefferson Choral Society (JCS) is the oldest and largest volunteer adult choir in Central Virginia, providing the greater Lynchburg area with a variety of performances including choral masterworks, as well as Broadway show tunes, folk songs, popular music, gospel music, and music from nations around the world. Membership in the choir requires an audition with the Music Director, attendance at weekly Monday evening rehearsals, and paying annual membership dues. The JCS typically performs three major concerts each year - at Christmastime, in the mid-winter, and in the spring - as well as an annual benefit concert at the National D-Day Memorial.
Membership in the Jefferson Choral Society is open to anyone eighteen or more years of age with a love of singing. Choir experience and the ability to read music are preferred. Auditions are held thrice yearly prior to the beginning of each series of rehearsals. Prospective singers are invited to attend a rehearsal at any time of the year and then schedule an audition with the Music Director at the beginning of the next new rehearsal series. Rehearsals are held at Timberlake United Methodist Church in Lynchburg on Monday evenings from 7:00 until 9:00 pm in the sanctuary. Please enter the church from the rear doors under the portico. Count on being greeted warmly!

We can perform at corporate functions, charity events, community entertainment events, birthday parties, Christmas parties, awards nights, weddings, engagements, anniversaries, engagements, and even funerals and memorial services.
