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.

Winter 2022 Concert

Due to recently updated COVID-19 mitigation policies and their impact on the scheduling of in-person rehearsals for the first portion of winter quarter 2022, rehearsals will begin on Monday, 7 February 2022. The winter quarter concerts have been moved to spring quarter and these will take place in addition to the previously-scheduled spring quarter concerts, resulting in two pairs of concerts being presented in spring quarter.
