The MISSION of the Foothills Chorale is...

  • to provide performance opportunities for qualified professional and amateur singers;
  • to enhance the quality of life in the foothills of South Carolina by providing numerous educational and musical experiences;
  • to provide educational enrichment by student involvement in Chorale events; and
  • to build a tradition of community pride through choral excellence.
The VISION of the Foothills Chorale is...
  • to establish and maintain a reputation as one of the outstanding choral groups in the Southeast;
  • to provide a variety of outreach programs to the community; and
  • to broaden the scope of the Chorale’s repertoire, including jazz, theatre music, and multi-cultural selections.

(The following is taken from the "Creed" of The Collegiate Chorale, Robert Shaw, conductor)

We Believe...

that in a world of political, economic and personal disintegrations music is not a luxury but a necessity -- not simply because it is "therapeutic," nor because it is the "universal language," but because it is the persistent focus of man's intelligence, aspiration and good-will.
We Believe...
that music is always a community enterprise. The solo performance does not exist. Even its creations is an attempt to communicate, and every performance an effort to unite the minds of men even of different generations.
We Believe...
that music is one art. The chorus, the symphony orchestra, the virtuoso recitalist and the string quartet are not competitive "attractions" for the public fashion in patronage, but are instruments of a single craft with similar responsibilities.
We Believe...
that music is peculiarly a doer's art, and its benefits are in direct proportions to active participation.
We Believe...
that it is the performer's business to get out of the way of music. His craft is to "reveal -- not to interpret."
We Believe...
that the choral art stands in a unique position to be of service to man and music because it offers the most immediate and accessible avenue of active participation.
And we believe...
that the choral instrument should assume a position of respect and musical responsibility commensurate with the distinction of its literature and comparable to that of the major professional orchestras.
