The SSU Symphonic Chorus is comprised of music majors, students from other majors, staff, faculty, and members of the community. Singers must pass an audition and experience and sight reading skills are required. Numbering between 60-80 singers, the Symphonic Chorus presents two-to-three major concerts each semester, performing large works such as the Mozart Requiem and Orff's Carmina Burana, as well as the annual Holiday Concert By Candlelight. The resident chorus of the Santa Rosa Symphony, the Symphonic Chorus performs with this prestigious music organization once a year, most recently in Rachmaninoff's The Bells in December 2016. Beginning with a special Sunrise Choral concert during the Green Music Center’s 2012 grand opening weekend, the Symphonic Chorus performs in Weill Hall and in Schroeder Hall at Sonoma State University. Symphonic Chorus rehearses on Mon/Wed from 6:00-7:50 pm.
