The Choral Project
Celebrating 19 years of musical excellence, The Choral Project has been hailed by the San José Mercury News as “a Bay Area jewel” and extolled by the Bay Area Reporter as “pure balm for the ears.”
The Choral Project, a 54-member auditioned, mixed-voice, community-based choir, is one of the premier performing organizations in Northern California. Founded in 1996 by Artistic Director Daniel Hughes, The Choral Project has developed an outstanding reputation for performing high-level choral literature and bridging the gap between text and music, singer and spectator. The ensemble has performed throughout the world to rave reviews and standing ovations, including performances for the American Choral Directors Association, the California Music Educators Association, the National Association of Composers of the USA, a performance by invitation to represent California at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., as part of the California State Day Celebration. as well as sold–out concerts in Mexico, Costa Rica and the United Kingdom.
Last season, The Choral Project performed a joint concert with the internationally-acclaimed Canadian Brass to a sold-out crowd. San Francisco Classical Voice described the concert as follows: “Once in a very great while, you attend a concert that immediately jumps to some imaginary, personal list of all-time best concert experiences. For me, The Choral Project of San José concert on Tuesday, performed to a packed audience at San José’s gorgeous Basilica of St Joseph, was one of those performances.” They were also invited to sing at the Bing Music Center in a multicultural concert presentation. Additionally, their recording of “Famine Song” was featured in the PBS documentary series Many Rivers To Cross.
