The Virginia Women's Chorus, conducted by Katherine “KaeRenae” Mitchell, is committed to excellence in the performance of classical, contemporary and diverse music from the challenging choral literature for women's voices. The Chorus seeks to inspire in the choral art form through the celebration of women’s repertoire. Comprised of devoted and talented young women, this ensemble is student-run and continues to uphold its tradition of exceptional music. Accolades come from many concertgoers and include comments such as this: “The concert was stunningly beautiful, sensitively programmed and a musical treat of the highest order. It really was quite amazing.”
