svclogoThe Souhegan Valley Chorus, a community chorus in the Milford-Amherst, NH area has been performing music since 1979.  We hold concerts, performing a variety of choral music from pops to light classics under the direction of Jennifer K. Erdody. Two sets of concerts are performed each season, one in December, for the holiday season, and two in late April or early May.  The chorus also participates in other events, including the Milford Labor Day Parade, the Amherst 4th of July celebration, and the Milford holiday celebration in December.

Membership is open, without audition, to singers from high school age through seniors who enjoy choral music. People come from towns in and around the Souhegan Valley for the weekly rehearsals that are held on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. usually in the Milford Middle School music room  (see here).
