About Us

Richmond Choral Society (RCS) is a local chorus of about 50-75 singers dedicated to performing, studying, and interpreting choral works since 1951. From classical to contemporary music, we strive to share the glory and appreciation for these traditions with the surrounding community. Our venues include a wide range of settings across Staten Island, New Jersey, and Manhattan—including the famed Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.

Richmond Choral Society (RCS) volunteer choristers represent a diverse range of professions, religions, ethnicities and age groups. RCS performs biannual concerts to showcase the beauty of classical pieces for local audiences. Led by a devoted group, RCS brings musical education and appreciation to the community.
