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, as well as at the Chorus Concert in the spring
  • Learn great choral masterworks and new commissions
  • Join a diverse, welcoming community
  • Develop your singing voice
  • Meet new friends

The Cost

The Oakland Symphony Chorus is a tuition-based ensemble. Chorus dues are $375 yearly, which covers participation in all rehearsals and performances! Additional fees for chorus attire and sheet music may apply as well, but these vary from year to year.

The Audition

The audition is a chance for our Chorus Director to hear your voice and assess your fit into the Chorus. We are currently scheduling appointments for the 2019-2020 Season.
