Welcome - The Reston Chorale - Fairfax County Choir.
The Reston Chorale has excited audiences with its musical excellence and versatility for almost 50 years. The Chorale was established to provide Western Fairfax County and the Greater Washington DC Metropolitan Area with the finest in choral music performance produced by amateur and professional musicians from the community. The mission of The Reston Chorale is to promote community interest and participation in, and enjoyment of, choral music.
The Chorale is a mixed-voice chorus with a full repertoire that varies in style from The great choral master-works of Bach and Beethoven to the American classics of Gershwin and Copeland. Our mission is to educate, enrich, and inspire our audiences in Northern Virginia as well as our members through the performance of choral music of the highest quality.
The Reston Chorale is also proud to provide the opportunity for local composers, musicians, singers and audience to participate in the creation of new music. In addition to presenting the world premiere of Donald McCullough's The Essential Life, the Chorale has also commissioned and premiered works by American composers James Grant, Daniel Gawthrop, David Ott, Scott Solak and others. In March 2004, the Chorale premiered a Julius Williams composition, A Journey to Freedom, Honor and Glory, celebrating the life of civil rights martyr Jonathan Daniels.
The Chorale has performed throughout the greater Washington, D.C. area in such venues as the John F. Kennedy Center, Wolf Trap, the George Mason University Center for the Performing Arts and the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center. In addition, the Chorale has been featured several times with the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra, and has sung with the Amadeus Orchestra and the Reston Community Orchestra, as well as Arlington, Alexandria, Prince William and Virginia Chamber orchestras.
For over a decade now, The Reston Chorale has joined the annual Holiday Tree Lighting at the Reston Town Center. It has become a favorite way to begin the seasonal celebration.
Governed by volunteers, the Chorale relies on the support of its members, the community and all who support the value of music to enrich the lives and spirits of those who listen, as well as those who sing and perform. The Reston Chorale endeavors to guarantee that these experiences are personal, accessible and affordable for all residents of Northern Virginia.
