Choral Arts Philadelphia

Over 30 years of Choral Tradition


The Experience

Making music since 1982, Choral Arts Philadelphia actively participates in the region’s musical community by celebrating the talents of our local professional and amateur musicians. As Philadelphia’s premier chamber chorus, Choral Arts Philadelphia presents concert experiences that delight and engage the community as well as contribute to their appreciation of the repertoire. Choral Arts Philadelphia is committed to musical excellence, historically informed performance practices, and furthering the great tradition of choral music.

Since 2013, Choral Arts Philadelphia and its sister organization, The Bach Festival of Philadelphia have presented Bach@7 Cantata Series, one-hour programs on Wednesday evenings, with pay-what-you-wish admission, featuring Bach’s works along with instrumental and choral works by early music and modern composers.


In its distinguished history, the choir has performed nearly 300 works by more than 100 composers. Under the tenure of its first artistic director, Sean Deibler, the ensemble regularly partnered with the Philadelphia Orchestra in concert and on recordings. Since then, Choral Arts Philadelphia has built a significant reputation and artistic presence in Philadelphia and has maintained a particularly strong commitment to exploring areas of the choral repertoire outside of the central canon. Deibler’s successor, Donald Nally, added greatly to the chorus’s local and national successes that culminated in receiving the Margaret Hillis Award for Choral Excellence from Chorus America and Philadelphia Magazine’s Best of Philly award during its 20th anniversary season. Since 2007, under the artistic direction of Matthew Glandorf, Choral Arts Philadelphia (formerly Choral Arts Society of Philadelphia) has continued to build its reputation as a premier Early music choir.
