Who is the Jefferson Choral Society


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.
