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, the non profit corporation is entirely run by volunteers who are participants in its 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. Rehearsals for the
Spring 2014 season begin on Tuesday, January 7 .
Singers will learn music for the spring concert. Registration closes
January 21. You can attend the first three rehearsals without obligation,
which gives you a chance to check us out, meet our fabulous director,
Paul Hurst, and mingle with our 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 7:00 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

of timeless works of Vivaldi’s “Requiem” and six songs of John Rutter,
woven together with traditional holiday pieces to form a colorful
quilt of music to warm and brighten the holiday spirit.
The audience then ended the concert with the traditional sing-along
of Handel’s “Hallalujah Chorus" and holiday carols as Santa navigated
the room to delight the guests and spread his own holiday cheer.
After the concerts, we offered refreshments at the Reception in the
