Mission

The mission of Piedmont Chamber Singers is to perform vocal chamber music, to train musicians in vocal music performance practice, to encourage the composition of new music for the small vocal ensemble, and to broaden interest in choral music as a whole through education and performance. In short, we fulfill our mission by enriching the community through innovative, engaging and compelling choral performances that feed both the intellect and the soul.

History

Established in 1977, Piedmont Chamber Singers (PCS) has been providing exceptional choral performances in the Triad for thirty-five years. Concert repertoire ranges from perennial favorites by Bach, Handel, Mozart and Haydn to modern masters Benjamin Britten, Aaron Copland, Francis Poulenc and Libby Larsen, and to Winston-Salem’s own resident composers, Dan Locklair, Kenneth Frazelle, William Stevens, Margaret Sandresky and Doug Borwick.

PCS is a 501(c)(3) organization governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors. PCS performs three to five formal concerts each season, and usually appears here and there in other events throughout the year. The ensemble consists of at most 32 members—also volunteers—and enlists numerous other friends and supporters to help produce our concerts over the course of each season.
