Welcome to the Peninsula Musical Arts Association
We are the Peninsula Musical Arts Association, formed to support community-based musical groups on the mid-peninsula. Based in Foster City, California, the non profit corporation is entirely run by volunteers who are participants in its two performing groups. In cooperation with the Foster City Parks and Recreation Department, we strive to bring to the community an appreciation of a broad range of musical literature.
Come Sing with Us!
The Foster City Community Chorus invites all singers, regardless of experience, to come and sing with us. Rehearsals for the Fall/Winter season begin on Tuesday, August 25. Singers will learn music for our Winter concert (December 5 & 6). Registration closes September 15. You can attend the first three rehearsals without obligation. This gives you a chance to check us out, meet our fabulous director, Paul Hurst, and mingle with our singers.
No audition is required. You don't even need to read music, though it helps, and you must be able to match a pitch. Some of our singers have extensive musical backgrounds; others have never sung anywhere but in the shower before joining our group. We offer music education, friendly people, and a chance to spend one evening a week doing something for yourself.
Rehearsals are 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm at Audubon School, 841 Gull Drive, Foster City (see
map). Please arrive at least 15 minutes early the first night. For more information, please call 650-268-8345 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This summer we sang at the Kennedy Center under the direction of Craig Jessop and were part of the National Memorial Day Parade in Washington D.C. We had a marvelous time of singing, sight-seeing, and enjoying the company of our fellow travelers. We have also sung at the Sydney Opera House in Australia, St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, Carnegie Hall in New York City, and Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. We hope you join us in planning our next trip ... although, if you don't want to travel, that is also fine. No matter, you will have a great time harmonizing with new and old friends.
