In December 2008, 12 singers performed PCCC’s first concert.
Today, we average 35 singers per season!
We are an inclusive group of men and women—a mix of ages, races, religions, and differing abilities to read music.
Our members have included accountants, college students, engineers, homemakers, retired military, nurses, and professional musicians, but the fascination we all share is our enjoyment of singing multi-part choral music.
During the past 15 years, PCCC’s maturation into the premier secular adult ensemble in the Plant City area is evident by our growing audiences and increasing supporters!
Our mission is to provide educational, cultural, social, and musical experiences which enrich our members, audiences and communities. Members can learn or enhance their craft of performance, art of singing, and understanding of choral principles.
As of January 1, 2011, PCCC became a 501(c)(3) organization. This non-profit status allows us to receive tax-free donations and sponsorships.
PCCC is governed by member-approved bylaws. The on-going business of the Chorale is handled by a member elected Executive Board. The voting members of this Board are the Executive Director, Secretary, and Treasurer. The Artistic Director and the Concert Manager advise and report to the Board.
The PCC Chorale provides its members with opportunities to sing a variety of music from many composers, countries, and eras.
Our Artistic Director develops and encourages dynamic musical expression, appropriate choral fundamentals, and affords opportunities for solo and small ensembles in addition to crafting consistent “one voice” choir performances.
PCC Chorale strives to be a model of excellence in choral performance. We are always looking for new voices to become a member of our singing community.
To join, a singer must demonstrate the ability to match pitches and rhythms, sing in tune, and be willing to sing in the section the Artistic Director determines best suits your voice and the Chorale’s need.
The Chorale generally has four (4) Concert Sessions during our Concert Season: Fall, Christmas, Spring, and an Americana/Patriotic Concert celebrating our nation and its Service members and Veterans.
In January 2019, a Women’s Ensemble was created to allow the PCC Chorale the flexibility to accept community performance requests. This group has a separate Director, is auditioned, and has a maximum membership of 12 Chorale Members. Please see the Women’s Ensemble page for more information.
