2022 Spring Concert
The Rappahannock Choral Society will start rehearsals on Monday, February 28, 2022 at the Zoan Baptist Church, 5888 Plank Road, Fredericksburg (diagonally across from Harrison Crossing Shopping Center). Interested singers and former members should plan on attending the first rehearsal starting at 6:30pm to register, pay dues and receive music. By waiting until the end of February the RCS board hopes the Covid variant will have peaked and passed and bad winter weather conditions affecting rehearsals will no longer be an issue.
RCS Conductor and Artistic Director, Dr. Jordan Davidson has selected songs for the Spring Concert which he has titled, “Yesterday: The Music that Takes Us Back…” The concert scheduled for June 2022 will include songs by the Beatles, Gladys Knight, ABBA, Elton John, Dolly Parton, the Temptations, Carole King, and so much more!

2021 Scholarship Winner
We are proud to announce that our 2021 Anne E. Parker Memorial RCS scholarship winner of $1000 is Adam Pellegreen, who recently graduated from Riverbend High School. Adam was not only a stellar student in all of his academics throughout high school, but he also excelled in all of his music courses and performances. He plays the bass (his main instrument) having started as a child, but is an excellent trumpet player as well. He has been in orchestras and bands in school and in church. Throughout high school he has been in all county, district, regional and state orchestras and bands. Adam plans to major in both engineering and music at James Madison University and would like to play in a professional orchestra in the near future. Congratulation to Adam. The RCS wishes you the best in your future endeavors.
RCS Kept Singing
Although the pandemic forced the RCS to cancel its regular rehearsals and concerts, members of the group remained active. Two small groups of about 12 singers each met on alternate Mondays to rehearse some songs. Conductor Dr. Jordan Davidson and Accompanist Marilla Haas led the small groups who had their temperatures taken, wore masks and socially distanced within the large sanctuary of the Zoan Baptist Church. The church custodian sanitized the area both before and after rehearsals.
Our 2019 Scholarship Winner is Sarah Cuba, from Spotsylvania High School!

She is a part of the Commonwealth Governor’s School, and plans to attend Virginia Commonwealth University in the fall to study Clarinet Performance.
