The Pioneer Valley Cappella (PVC) is a Northampton-based auditioned ensemble that has been performing unaccompanied choral music for nearly thirty years. We explore a fascinating range of repertoire; from early Renaissance to contemporary, the Americas to Eastern Europe.

Our conductor, Geoffrey Hudson, is an internationally-respected composer who brings his understanding and love of music both to rehearsals and to programs. For more about Geoff, visit http://www.hybridvigormusic.org.

Our concerts generally take place two weekends a year. The fall 2016 program, "Clap, Weep, Rage, Sleep," music of intense emotion and reconciliation, will be performed 7:30 PM Friday, November 18 at Grace Church, Amherst; and 7:30 PM Saturday, November 19, at St. John's Church, Northampton. For details, visit our concerts page.

We rehearse at the Northampton Community Music Center. We will audition experienced singers again in January - for details, visit our Audition page. If you are interested in attending one of our concerts or joining our e-mail list, please contact us.
