Valley Forge Chorus ("VFC") has been entertaining audiences in the Philadelphia area for 54 years with four-part a cappella harmonies and stunning visual performances. As a premier competing chorus, we have honorably earned two international gold medals and numerous first place regional medals, including Division A Champions in May 2019.
We combine 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. Throughout the 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 Atlantic Bay-Mountain Region 19 quartet and chorus competition(s). This is a special time for our quartets and chorus members to come together with other performers to compete and gain valuable feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition(s) are invited to represent our region in the Sweet Adelines International Competition, which is held in the fall. Click here to learn more.
Choruses often have members who form vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. The Valley Forge Chorus is currently home to two wonderful quartet(s), Boomerang and Audacious, which we are extremely proud! See our Quartet page to learn more about them.
Valley Forge Chorus creates a Barbershop Blog to keep our friends, supporters and followers up-to-date with the activities and events of the Chorus.
Valley Forge Chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adeline International. Founded in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1945, Sweet Adelines started as a small group of women who loved to sing.
