About Us

Membership Fee of $45 per member per concert is required to help cover the cost of SCCS activities. The fee may be waived as a scholarship for students or other qualifying members.

The San Clemente Choral Society was created to provide an educational setting in South Orange County for musicians and those who simply love to sing with a passion to study and enjoy choral music.  Our mixed voice chorus ranges in age from 18 to 80 with members from several South Orange County cities.


SCCS was founded in the fall of 2004 as a not-for-profit corporation designed specifically to promote choral music throughout South Orange County.  The San Clemente Choral Society is a 501(c)(3) organization (#68-0595100) and your donation, contribution, patronage or gift is tax deductable.  Since our inception we have provided singing opportunities for our members in concerts primarily in the cities of San Clemente, Dana Point and San Juan Capistrano.  Our members rehearse each week and perform in concerts bringing our audiences a rich variety of choral music ranging from classical to contemporary pieces performed with professional accompanists and soloists.

Something for Everyone!

Our members have opportunities to sing and perform in smaller groups as well.  Soloists from all four sections are featured at our concerts at various times.  If this interests you, please click below for some examples from a recent concert.
