The award-winning Valley Forge Chorus ("VFC") has been entertaining audiences in the Delaware County for well over 54 years with its high energy a cappella harmonies and stunning visual performances. VFC is a premier competing chorus which has honorably earned two international gold medals and numerous first place regional medals, one as recently as 2017.
The Valley Forge Chorus combines thrilling harmonies with energetic choreography to create an unforgettable audience experience. Our inspirational repertoire includes show tunes, patriotic, and sacred music, along with gospel, pop, barbershop and jazz.
We thoroughly enjoy performing within the community and are availabile to sing at your next upcoming function or event. For more information, please visit our "Hire Us" page.
In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of a cappella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and is a very important component of the chorus experience. A couple of times a year, we're coached by visiting Master Directors who demonstrate the art of four part harmonizing and teach us the fabulous tricks of the trade.
Each spring Valley Forge Chorus participates in the Region 19 chorus competition. Competitions are a special time for our quartets and chorus because we come together with others from our region to perform and gain valuable feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected each year.

Choruses often have members who form vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. The Valley Forge Chorus is currently home to a wonderful quartet of which we are extremely proud! See our Quartet page to learn more about them.
Valley Forge Chorus creates a Barbershop Blog periodically to keep our friends, supporters and followers up-to-date with the activities and events of the Chorus.
