Heart & Soul is an auditioned subset of the Peninsula Community Chorus. Heart & Soul sings songs with tight harmonies and songs which work well with a small group.
A singer must be in the Peninsula Community Chorus to audition for Heart & Soul. The director decides when to audition new singers for Heart & Soul. The most important requirement is to be able to blend with the other voices and participate in rehearsals and concerts.
In 1994, our first director, Fred De Boer, established a small audition-only group, the Foster City Chorale, now known as Heart & Soul. The chorale became so well known that it was invited to perform at the White House in December, 1995. In the past, various organizations have hired Heart & Soul to sing at different venues in Northern California. Currently, Heart & Soul rehearses after the Peninsula Community Chorus on Tuesday evenings from 9:30-10:00 pm and performs a short set during the concerts.
