Who We Are
We are referred to as a community chorus. For performances other than our bi-annual concerts we are represented by The Spotlighters, a smaller ensemble of the chorus. Our legal governing entity, authorized to conduct official business as a nonprofit charitable organization, is The Spotsylvanians, Inc®. More information about each is stated below.
How We Operate
The Spotsylvanians, Inc.®
We are a nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation and community choral organization in partnership with Spotsylvania County Parks and Recreation and parent organization to The Spotsylvanians Community Chorus.® We are a member organization of the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber Of Commerce. Our goals are to provide affordable, quality musical entertainment, and to enlighten, educate, and acquaint the community with the history and variety of choral music through our performances. In addition, participants learn proper choral and performance techniques. We also cooperate with school based musical support programs by involving students from within our local school system. Membership fees are waived for students.
The Spotsylvanians Community Chorus®
We perform two major concerts each year – a Spring Concert in May and a Christmas Candlelight Concert in December. Our Christmas Concert is free of charge as “OUR GIFT TO THE COMMUNITY.” Our Spring Concert has an admission fee to help defray annual operating expenses. Tickets are sold in two categories, regular admission and discounted admission for senior citizens and students. In addition, we perform at Spotsylvania County sponsored events. Our membership consists of approximately 50 singers divided into four balanced sections.
This smaller group is a select ensemble comprised of singers from The Spotsylvanians Community Chorus.® They perform where it would not be feasible for our larger group to perform. When requested to perform at organized events, The Spotlighters require a stipend to help defray annual operating expenses. Visit our contact page for scheduling and booking information.
The Spotsylvanians® welcomes anyone interested in singing in our choral ensemble. If you would like to become a part of this exciting experience, contact our membership chairperson at email@example.com. We renew membership for each of our two annual concerts and practice Mondays, 7-9:30 p.m. Membership dues are $35 ($65 for a couple) to help defray concert costs.
What We Sing
This exciting chorus learns and performs a wide variety of excellent choral literature for our Spring Concert. The repertoire includes spirituals, sacred and folk songs, melodies from Broadway, humorous pieces and music of the great composers. Our Christmas Candlelight Concert features beautiful carols, folk songs, traditional hymns and contemporary pieces. It is performed on a stage decorated for Christmas in a family setting. Concert Performance Dates: Check the Upcoming Performances section of this website, and the local media, for dates and location of our December and May concerts.
