About Us

As a non-auditioned choir, we’re committed to enabling folks from every walk of life to experience the joy of singing with others.
Here’s a little about who we are. For our vision and commitment, click here.
Rehearsals & Performances

We rehearse during the spring and fall seasons (Jan-May and late Aug-Dec) on Tuesdays, 6:30PM-8:00PM at Gainesville Presbyterian Church, performing concerts in May and December. In addition, we have sung for assisted living facility residents, shoppers at the Manassas Mall, and onstage at the Filene Center in the annual Wolf Trap Holiday Sing-A-Long.

History

 

Founded in January, 2013 and nearly doubling in size our first year, we now maintain a steady membership of 75-90 voices. GCC is a non-profit 501c3 organization and a member of the Prince William County Arts Council.

Our singers come from all levels of musical experience, training, and background. We come together to celebrate God’s gift of music, and we find great joy in singing together and sharing our music with the communities of Northern Virginia.

Membership Fee

Regular Rate = $110/singer/season; Family Discount Rate = $100/singer/season [applies to additional members of the same immediate family (parents, children, siblings)]; Couples Discount Rate = $190/married couple/season.  Payment increases by $25/person after the early-bird deadline has passed.

Repertoire

We enjoy a large variety of styles in our repertoire, and find joy in the challenge of singing across the genres. Musical styles vary from sacred to secular, from American folk to international pieces, and from classical works to Broadway show tunes, and more.

Our concerts have included works of Dan Forrest, Moses Hogan,  Ola Gjeilo, Eric Whitacre, Billy Joel, Queen, G. F. Handel, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Schwartz, Rodgers & Hammerstein, and many more.

Music Education Classes

Music theory and sight singing sessions are also offered to choir members after certain Tuesday rehearsals, from 8:15-8:45pm.

Private Voice Lessons

Private voice lessons are usually offered during the summer break at discounted rate for GCC members.
