The SSO Chorus

The Southland Symphony Orchestra announces the continued growth of The Southland Symphony Orchestra Chorus!

The Southland Symphony Orchestra Chorus is part of the SSO family, joining in concerts with the Southland Symphony Orchestra. The chorus is a volunteer organization, open to all singers. (A voice placement audition may be required of new members.) 

The chorus is a growing, dedicated group of singers from the community. We made our debut at the "Tribute to Democracy" Concert with the SSO on Sunday October 23rd, 2016 at 4pm at Bethel Congregational Church.

Under the direction of Dr. Sylvia Lee Mann, the orchestra and chorus bring wonderful music to the city of Ontario, and our neighboring communities.

During the 2016-17 season we presented the "Requiem" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, at our Sunday March 5th concert, a performance which resulted in special recognition from "Distinguished Concerts International New York", and an invitation to The Southland Symphony Chorus to participate in a performance of Mozart’s Requiem on the Distinguished Concerts International New York Concert Series in New York City.

For the 2017-18 season opening concert on Sunday October 8th, we presented Beethoven's Choral Fantasy, as well as his "Hallelujah" from The Mount of Olives; on December 10th, we presented Handel's "Messiah", and of course we traveled to New York City and again performed Mozart's Requiem, this time in a stellar performance with DCINY on Monday, February 19, 2018 – President’s Day Weekend- in Carnegie Hall’s Isaac Stern Auditorium under the baton of Dr. James Meaders, and we were there! And more big news - we have an open invitation to return!

In 2018-19, In what has become an annual tradition, we again presented "Messiah" to a full house on Sunday December 9th. Our spring concert, entitled "Beauty and Power", featured  Faure's Requiem and his "Cantique de Jean Racine", as well as selections from Mendelssohn's Elijah and Brahms' Requiem

And for this 2019-20 season, we presented Handel's Messiah on Sunday December 8th, and will be performing the monumental 9th Symphony of Beethoven at our Season Finale, May 31, 2020.
