Profile "The Woodland Chamber Singers is a community-based, non-profit chorus dedicated to promoting choral singing in Yolo County.  Heralding 60-70 voices plus instrumentalists from Woodland, Davis, Sacramento, Dixon, Winters, and the surrounding areas, the Woodland Chamber Singers brings together a wide range of voices, ages, and skill levels from the community.

"WCS presents two performances a year that aim to be entertaining, educational, and memorable. The popular Christmas concerts have become a holiday tradition, showcasing a variety of familiar and inventive holiday favorites, and the Spring concerts feature an array of works to bring joy to the audience. In an effort to offer musical variety, knowledge, and vocal skill to the WCS choral experience, singers are provided the opportunity to perform as soloists, in small ensembles, and in women's and men's ensembles."
