The Stanford Symphonic Chorus is a group of approximately 180 students, faculty, staff, and members of the community led by Director of Music and Conductor Stephen Sano. The Chorus generally performs three works a year, one each academic quarter. Each performance typically features a large choral work, and includes other choral or instrumental pieces. See our Performances page for information about past performances.

We regret that we cannot accept additional sopranos or altos into the Chorus for this spring quarter beyond those who sang with us this past winter, due to limited capacity in both our rehearsal and performance spaces. If you'd like to be put on a wait list, please contact the Choral Studies Program Administrator,
