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
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.
