Plano Civic Chorus (PCC) seeks a highly qualified Artistic Director/Conductor beginning at the start of the 2023-2024 season. PCC has established itself as one of the premiere arts groups in North Texas, known for its innovative programming and masterwork performances. The chorus’ broad repertoire includes a variety of choral works from classical to contemporary and from sacred to secular. The chorus performs regularly with the Plano Symphony Orchestra and has been invited to perform with several notable organizations in the area, including Irving Symphony Orchestra, Imperial Brass, Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra, and Richardson Symphony Orchestra. In addition to the many years of regular season programming, PCC has also toured in Europe six times. For additional information about PCC, please visit the ABOUT section of our website.
Plano Civic Chorus consists of two performing groups: Plano Civic Chorus, a 90-member auditioned chorus, and the Plano Chamber Chorus, a 26-member group auditioned and selected from Plano Civic Chorus members. Plano Civic Chorus performs three or four concerts each season while the Plano Chamber Chorus performs one to two concerts each season. Plano Civic Chorus, as well as the Plano Chamber Chorus, rehearse weekly on Monday evenings from late August through early May.
