The Blackhawk Chorus, based in Danville, CA, performs great choral music in the Bay Area and around the world. With nearly 140 members, the chorus continues to grow in both quality and artistry with every new season under the direction of Diane Gilfether.

The chorus has performed on tour in Austria, the Czech Republic, England, Scotland, Wales, Lincoln Center in New York City, and at the Vatican in Rome. In the summer of 2012, the group revisited the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, singing in the beautiful cities of Waterford and Cork. We’re understandably proud of how far we’ve come and the future appears even more exciting as we plan for a concert tour in Spain during the summer of 2015.
