The Choral Project, founded by Artistic Director Daniel Hughes in 1996, has been hailed by the San Jose Mercury News as a Bay Area jewel, stating that there is nothing subtle about why this is one of the best choirs you will ever hear. This 52-voice award-winning ensemble has developed an outstanding reputation for performing high-level choral literature and bridging the gap between text and music, singer and spectator. The Choral Project’s musical programming is broad and diverse, ranging from early renaissance to contemporary, including world music, gospel, spirituals and jazz. The Choral Project is also a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization involved in community outreach, including a choral mentorship program for local high school students, a students for free program for kids 10-18, joint performances with visiting choirs, and an annual Choral Composition Contest for high school students and undergraduates. Mission: To connect to one another through choral theater, education and musical excellence.
