The Wilmington Choral Society consists of women and men who are dedicated to the performance of the best of choral music. Our repertoire ranges from the great classical masterpieces to contemporary secular music.

If you are interested in joining the WCS, we would love to hear from you! For new applicants, we ask that you have a background of choral music performance, a commitment to attend all rehearsals (you may miss 2, and still perform), and a willingness to work hard and rehearse at home several times a week. For our current members, welcome back.
