Great music. And more of it.

Announcing our 2016-2017 Season!

Chestnut Street Singers is so excited to announce our busiest season yet! This year we’ll be expanding to many new venues and adding a second performance of each of our three concert programs. That means you’ll have twice as many chances to hear eclectic choral music by Philadelphia’s only cooperative chorus.
