Our Mission

The mission of the Charleston Symphony Chorus is to promote enjoyment and appreciation of choral music in the South Carolina Lowcountry.
We do this through performance of a diverse choral repertoire, presented in concerts of the highest standard of musical excellence, and programs that seek to nurture and educate future singers and audiences alike.
