Richmond Choral Society (Rcs) was founded in 1951 for the purpose of studying, interpreting and performing classical and contemporary choral works, sharing this repertoire with the community and expanding its understanding and participation in this tradition. Since its inception, Rcs has enjoyed a changing roster of volunteer choristers representing every profession, religion, ethnicity and age group. Exploring new repertory for its two concerts per year in a variety of settings across Staten Island, Manhattan–including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center–and New Jersey, collaborating with other community organizations, Rcs has continued to evolve.
Rcs holds two concerts per year and is involved in educating as well as performing. Since 1993, Rcs auditions graduating high school seniors for an annual scholarship for the further study of voice and vocal music; the winner performs at its spring concert.
Rcs Youth Chorus, now Young Voyces, was conceived and made available to Staten Island students from fourth through twelfth grade as an extension of Rcs from 2003 to 2013.
Rcs Chamber Ensemble is a smaller group of the 12 to 24 voices chosen by the director from the full adult chorus to perform at community events by special request and at selected RCS concerts.
