The purpose of DCS is to bring the enjoyment of music by providing the opportunity (1) for community members to learn and perform quality choral music through offering membership to all interested singers and (2) for community members to hear quality music by giving affordable concerts of high artistic standards at least twice annually.
The Delaware Choral Society is a non-profit organization, open to every interested singer without audition. We were founded in 1957 by a group of church choirs with the goal of working together to perform Handel’s Messiah. Today, DCS welcomes any community member to join us as we partner with local and professional musicians to perform works such as Carmina Burana, Mozart’s Requiem, and Haydn’s Creation. We also enjoy our pops concerts with themes like Curtain Up! (Broadway favorites) and Musical Feast (songs about food).
DCS meets weekly on Tuesday evenings from 7pm – 9pm at the Wesley United Methodist Church in Dover, DE in the fall and spring to prepare for two semi-annual concerts in April and December. Facilities are wheelchair accessible and ADA compliant.
