2023-2024 Board of Directors

The Choral Society is a volunteer community chorus and is managed by chorus members and supporters who apply their business and artistic skills as Board members. For 46 years, the Board has strived to create opportunities for growth, responsible fiscal management, and new avenues to enrich the arts culture on Hilton Head Island for the benefit of residents and tourists alike. The organization is governed by By-Laws that are modified as necessary to keep us relevant and efficiently functional. The entire chorus membership lends its support for fundraising, ticket sales, and event promotion.
