Our Mission:

Founded in 1975, the Northern Virginia Chorale is a 70-voice choral singing group under the artistic directorship of Robert S. Webb Jr.  We perform three yearly concerts showcasing a variety of high quality choral music, composers, and musical genres.  The Chorale is frequently accompanied by guest solo artists as well as orchestras.  We also perform on special occasions with other distinguished area choral groups in prestigious local venues.  We strive to fulfill our mission to enrich the Northern Virginia Community with “the joy of choral music.”

Please join us again for our upcoming 2021-22 Performing Season!  Our concerts will be announced under our Season’s Schedule page.


A Message from the Northern Virginia Chorale:

Greetings!  We hope that this message finds you and your family doing well. We have missed our rehearsals and concerts canceled by the COVID virus, but are now enthusiastically anticipating the return to our regular fall schedule of concerts, and to be able to greet you again in person!

The Chorale generally performs three yearly concerts which include guest solo artists, and orchestral accompaniment. We are planning to perform this coming fall and winter for our 2021-22 Concert Season, as well as to perform our previously scheduled, “American Landscapes” concert at a later date during our Spring 2022 Season.  In the meantime, we would like to suggest that you browse through our new website, and enjoy listening to some of our many audio selections featured at the  bottom of this page,  as well as under our new, Sounds of the Chorale section!
