Established in the summer of 1917, the Vallejo Choral Society (VCS) is one of the oldest musical organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area and the oldest community-based non-professional choir in California. The VCS, or as it was originally called the Vallejo Municipal Chorus, gave its first performance on December 9, 1917 in San Francisco in a joint concert with the San Francisco Municipal Orchestra.
VCS continues to play a vital role in musical life of the Solano County, attracting new singers from as far as Vacaville, Berkeley and Castro Valley. One of the most memorable events in the choir’s recent history was performance of Beethoven’s Mass in C Major in Fairfield and Vacaville with the Solano Community Symphony during the 2004 Christmas Season. With the group’s membership growing steadily during the past several seasons and performances in front of the capacity filled halls, the future of VCS is brimming with promise and excitement in anticipation of the choir’s quickly approaching Centennial Anniversary!
