Founded in 1973, the Bucks County Choral Society is an auditioned volunteer choir based in Doylestown, PA, near Philadelphia. Under the direction of Artistic Director Thomas Lloyd, the 100 voice choir performs in venues throughout Bucks County, and is widely recognized as the area's premiere large choral ensemble. BCCS performs an extensive repertoire of music, ranging from classical to contemporary, including pieces by local composers as well as works specially commissioned for the group. The Chamber Choir of the Bucks County Choral Society is comprised of a selected group of singers from within the Choral Society. The Chamber Choir performs additional music, often a cappella, at many BCCS concerts.
In addition to its annual four-concert subscription series, BCCS serves the community through scholarship programs and solo performance opportunities for young singers, as well as through its acclaimed "Singing for Seniors" program, which involves hundreds of local seniors in choral singing under the leadership of Thomas Lloyd and the renowned children's choir director Helen Kemp. The choir has also made a number of international tours.
