Thank you for visiting our website! The Rappahannock Choral Society is a work of art created by a community of artists. “Great Music…Close to Home!”© is created by nearly 70 rich and wonderful voices brought to harmony by our inspirational conductor, Linda Monner, and accented with the talents of accompanist Marilla Haas, percussionist Mike Pipoly and narrator Dan Thompson.
As a boy, I was awestruck by Hollywood actors devising masterpieces through their work on the big screen. The RCS invokes the same feeling of witnessing art being created. See for yourself with complimentary admission to an awesome Christmas Concert. Visit our Upcoming Performances page for more information on our Christmas concert to be held December 16 and 17 (NEW DATES for this season!!) at Chancellor High School. PLEASE NOTE that this is a change in dates from our usual concert weekend in December. Our 2018 Christmas concert will once again be on the first full weekend of December. One last note: We have a new concert starting time on Saturday evening … 7:30 p.m. It will be nice to get home a bit earlier on a chilly December evening!
The RCS, exempt from tax as a nonprofit organization under section 501(c)(3) under the Internal Revenue Code, is entering its eighth year financially secure and growing. A large part of our success is because membership in the chorus is by audition only. Our members come from Spotsylvania, Stafford, King George, Orange, Louisa and Caroline Counties and the City of Fredericksburg. In addition to performers, we also invite other members of our community to participate in and foster our growth with wealth, wisdom, and work from the Fredericksburg business community, educators, and backstage volunteers. If you would like to be part of the future of RCS, reach out to current members for an audition. Visit our Contact Us page to send an email to Linda Monner, Conductor, for auditions. Direct your email to Dave Covington if you are interested in our board or a committee position. Direct your message to Fred Monner for donation opportunities.
You can also support the RCS as an audience member at our concerts. You’ll be able to re-experience our magnificent Spring Concert with a CD, available in the lobby on site at our Christmas Concert, or request one visiting our contact page and sending us an email. We also have a limited supply of previous Spring and Christmas concerts. They make great gifts!
Best wishes to you and your families! I hope to see you at our Christmas Concert on December 16 and 17, 2017, where you’ll hear some Great Music…Close to Home!©

President, Rappahannock Choral Society
