Gwinnett Symphony Chorus

Founded in 2007, Gwinnett Symphony Chorus (GSC) is under the direction of Rick Smith. GSC is comprised of approximately 80 singers from all walks of life from Gwinnett and the surrounding region. GSC is made up of primarily volunteer musicians with a few key professional musicians. Many of these musicians have been loyal members of the chorus since its inception. Members include music faculty from New School of Music, local school music programs and universities, and community musicians. GSC performs multiple concerts per season including masterworks, holiday concerts and combined concerts with our symphony orchestra and jazz orchestra. GSC performed Renee Clausen’s Memorial at Lincoln Center in New York on September 11, 2011 in a special concert commemorating the 10th anniversary of the tragic events in NYC. Membership in GSC is by audition with the conductor or by invitation. Interested musicians may inquire about membership throughout the year.
