Description:

Who We Are

  • The Rockville Chorus is sponsored by the City of Rockville Department of Recreation and Parks, Arts Division (since 1972).
  • The Rockville Chorus is led through the professional direction of Bryan Seith (since 1991) and piano accompaniment by Dick Gilbert.
  • The Rockville Chorus is comprised of approximately 50 volunteer members who have been selected via an audition process and enjoy performing a varied repertoire.
  • The Rockville Chorus Board (comprised of chorus members) provides administration for the organization.

What We Do

  • Provide free choral concerts for the Rockville community and regional audiences.
  • Present two concerts annually (May and December) in the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre at Rockville Civic Center Park.
  • Perform many other concerts throughout the immediate region in a variety of venues.
  • Sing a varied repertoire that often features works from leading composers including Bach, Britten, Mozart, Rutter, Hindemuth, Thompson, Vaughan Williams, Shaw, as well as many others. The Rockville Chorus also periodically performs/introduces works by local composers.
  • Rehearse weekly Monday evenings at the Rockville Senior Center (1150 Carnation Drive).
  • Pay a membership fee of approximately $50 each season (Fall & Spring) directly to the Rockville Chorus treasury.

Outreach

  • The Rockville Chorus maintains an outreach group called the Rockville Singers consisting of 20-30 voices. This smaller scale group performs at venues that are not large enough to accommodate the entire 50 member Chorus. The Rockville Singers (formed in 1999) perform eight to ten times a year and present a different repertoire of music from the Rockville Chorus.
