About The Choral Project
Celebrating 12 years of musical excellence, The Choral Project has been hailed by the San José Mercury News as "one of the best-sounding choirs you'll ever hear" and extolled by the Bay Area Reporter as "pure balm for the ears." Founded by Artistic Director Daniel Hughes in 1996, this 46-voice ensemble has developed an outstanding reputation for performing high-level choral literature and bridging the gap between text and music, singer and spectator. The group has performed throughout California and recently took 1st place in the Choir's Choice category at the California International Choral Festival and Competition in San Luis Obispo.
