Who are the singers in the Chorus?

We are computer professionals, homemakers, teachers, sales representatives, doctors, students, artists, retirees, and consultants. We live in Oakland, San Francisco, Santa Rosa, Menlo Park, San Leandro, Castro Valley, Livermore, and Marin. And we all love to sing! The Chorus ranks include an array of experience levels, and with designated section leaders and vocal coaching available, the Oakland Symphony Chorus is a great place to develop your voice.


  • Perform at the Paramount Theatre with Michael Morgan and the Oakland Symphony
  • Learn the great choral masterworks and new commissions
  • Join a diverse, welcoming community of all ages
  • Develop and improve your singing voice
  • Meet new friends
