Schola Cantorum of Waynesboro is a choral group from the Shenandoah Valley area (primarily Augusta County, Staunton and Waynesboro) formed to present great works of the master composers to the community. The ensemble is comprised of approximately 50 volunteer musicians who represent the most talented singers from the area. We attempt to present the music as the composer designed it to be heard with orchestral accompaniment, where appropriate. In addition to concerts in the Fall and Spring each year, the group strives to increase its performance schedule to include more ambitious works and to allow more opportunities for the community to appreciate and enjoy great classical music. Small ensembles from the group perform at smaller venues such as community events, hospitals, libraries, churches and retirement communities.
