Welcome to the Fairfax Choral Society!

For the past 55 years, the Fairfax Choral Society has uplifted, inspired, and enriched Northern Virginia’s cultural horizon. The simple mission of FCS has remained steadfast over the years: to serve the community by enriching lives through the performance, education, and appreciation of choral art.

Announcing our 2016-17 Season

Join the Fairfax Choral Society as we celebrate our 55th anniversary. Our season teems with rich choral masterpieces, innovative modern-day compositions, and everything in between. We open our season with a rousing night of hilarious musical parodies with world renowned musical satirist Peter Schickele alongside his alter-ego P.D.Q. Bach.

Celebrate the splendor of the season with FCS at one of our several holiday concerts this December. Come spring, the Fairfax Choral Society kicks into full gear: collaborations, commission, and concerts abound. Performances include Hollywood Goes Choral IV in a night of magical movie music featuring the Symphonic Chorus with the Washington Symphonic Brass. Our youth choruses expand their collaboration with students from Fairfax County Public Schools with two unique performances featuring the creativity and artistry of our county’s youth, Harmonious Art: Journeys and Poetry of Music: Let the River Run.

May’s performances include An Afternoon on a Hill featuring the Centreville and Vienna Campus Youth Choruses and Spring Follies!, the not-to-be-missed culminating concert of the Annandale Campus Youth Choruses and select soloists featuring songs of the stage.

As the 55th Anniversary season comes to a close, the Fairfax Choral Society joins with Music & Arts Chorus at Providence to commemorate the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra’s 60th Anniversary performing “Ode to Joy,” Beethoven’s glorious Symphony No. 9 in a concert that celebrates our shared history and dedication to the enrichment of cultural life in Fairfax County.
