Come Sing With Us

The Peninsula Musical Arts Association is composed of three groups: the Peninsula Community Chorus; an ensemble group from within the Chorus, Heart & Soul; and an auxiliary group, the Community Singers.

Meet Erin Moore. We have an exciting new season planned. In addition to rehearsals and sectionals, we offer classes in music theory, note-reading, singing, sight-singing and music appreciation. Rehearsals begin January 10, 2023.


Come Meet the Chorus


Peninsula Community Chorus

The Peninsula Community Chorus is a community-based, performance-oriented vocal group offering a variety of musical literature ranging from classical to folk to contemporary. The Chorus sings for community and civic events, such as Foster City's annual tree-lighting ceremony and Lions Club meetings, and presents public concerts in the Spring and Winter.

Participation is open to adult residents of the Peninsula and surrounding communities. Auditions are not required, but a strong sense of commitment and dedication to the group is essential. Under the direction of Erin Moore, instruction in basic music theory and fundamental singing techniques is offered in a non-threatening environment, with support from other chorus members. Public performance is also an important part of the chorus experience. The chorus has performed more than 50 concerts and civic performances.

Rehearsals are on Tuesdays starting at 7:00pm.  

Seasons are January through early May (Spring) and August through early December (Fall.) Registration opens at the beginning of each season. Each season culminates in a public concert. The Spring season features secular pieces and the Fall season emphasizes a variety of holiday pieces.

Heart & Soul

Heart & Soul is a mixed-voice ensemble of current Peninsula Community Chorus members, selected by Director Erin Moore. The repertoire ranges from Baroque to contemporary, including spiritual, Broadway and Big Band.

Heart & Soul rehearses from 9:30 pm to 10:00 pm, immediately following the PCC Tuesday evening rehearsals.

How do I join?

Come join the Peninsula Community Chorus. We'd be delighted for you to come and harmonize with us.

Singers must purchase the music which is passed out at rehearsal to rehearse for our concerts. No audition is required.  You don't need to read music, though it helps. Some have had professional voice training, some have performed with high school, college or church choirs. Some have only sung in the shower, and some don't even read music. If you can stay on pitch, blend with your fellow singers, and are willing to learn and have fun making music, then the chorus is prepared to help you participate. You just need to be able to match pitch and be able to sing not just the melody, but also in parts.

Registration for each season opens a month before the season begins and closes with the 3rd rehearsal of the season. Singer fees are currently $140 including music for the season. You can attend the first three rehearsals without obligation. This gives you a chance to check us out, meet our fabulous director, Erin Moore, and mingle with our friendly singers.

Registration for the Fall Season begins July 15.
