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

We are happy to announce the return of Geoffrey Hudson, who conducted us from 2002 to 2007. An internationally-respected composer, Geoff brings his understanding and love of music both to rehearsals and to programs. For more about Geoff, visit

Our concerts generally take place two weekends a year. The spring 2014 program, “Poetry and Prophecy,”, features Randall Thompson's The Peaceable Kingdom, and choral works by Schumann, Janácek, John Taverner and Tarlow. Our concerts will be at 8:00 pm on Friday, May 2 at All Saints' Episcopal Church in South Hadley, and at 4:00 pm on Sunday, May 4, at St. John's Episcopal Church in Northampton. For details, visit our concerts page.

We rehearse at the Northampton Community Music Center. We will audition experienced singers again after this concert. If you are interested in attending one of our concerts, auditioning or joining our e-mail list, please contact us.
