Welcome to the Peninsula Musical Arts Association

We are the Peninsula Musical Arts Association, formed to support community-based musical groups on the mid-peninsula. Based in Foster City, California, our nonprofit corporation consists of volunteers from communities all over the Peninsula who participate in our two performing groups. In cooperation with the Foster City Parks and Recreation Department, we strive to bring to the community an appreciation of a broad range of musical literature.



Come Sing with Us!

The Foster City Community Chorus invites all singers, regardless of experience, to come and sing with us. We have two singing seasons each year, Spring and Fall. Our upcoming Fall season begins with rehearsals on Tuesday, August 30 at 7:15 pm. Singers will be provided music to learn for our Fall season concert, usually held the first week of December. Registration closes with our 3rd rehearsal of the season, on September 13. You can attend the first three rehearsals without obligation. This gives you a chance to check us out, meet our fabulous director, Paul Hurst, and mingle with our friendly singers.

No audition is required. You don't even need to read music, though it helps, and you must be able to match a pitch. Some of our singers have extensive musical backgrounds; others have never sung anywhere but in the shower before joining our group. We offer music education, friendly people, and a chance to spend one evening a week doing something for yourself.

Rehearsals are 7:15 pm to 9:30 pm at Audubon School, 841 Gull Drive, Foster City (see map). Please arrive at least 15 minutes early the first night. For more information, please call 650-268-8345 or send an e-mail to

Come Travel with Us!

On June 6, 2016, we sang Gabriel Faure's Requiem at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, one of California's finest cathedrals.

Last summer we sang at the Kennedy Center under the direction of Craig Jessop and were part of the National Memorial Day Parade in Washington D.C. We had a marvelous time of singing, sight-seeing, and enjoying the company of our fellow travelers. In previous seasons, we have sung at the Sydney Opera House in Australia, St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, Carnegie Hall in New York City, and Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.

Chorus members are welcome to join us on these trips. But, if you don't want to travel, that is also fine. No matter, you will have a great time harmonizing with new and old friends.
