About Delaware ChoralArts
Mission: A professional-caliber community chorus, Delaware ChoralArts serves the greater Wilmington area by: presenting performances of great choral literature; cultivating talented singers through professional development and preparation; and nurturing the art of choral music through scholarships, commissions, and showcases.
Known for its expressive singing, varied and diverse programming, and its ability to produce a thrilling “wall of sound,” Delaware ChoralArts (DCA) has brought a rich palate of choral music to the region since its beginnings in 1984. DCA strives to nurture and develop young people’s appreciation of the choral art through its competition for young composers and now through its “side-by-side” collaboration with high school students as well as its frequent collaboration with the Wilmington Children’s Chorus
. DCA is run by a dedicated Board of Directors made up of members of the chorale along with support from members of the community who serve in an advisory capacity.
Funding for DCA comes from a number of sources including generous grants from the Delaware Division of the Arts
and a growing number of enthusiastic Patrons, fund raising projects and ticket and ad sales.
