Celebrating Community and Sharing the Joy of Music

The Healdsburg Chorus, directed by David Martin, is a beloved musical institution now in its 36th year.  The Healdsburg Chorus is comprised of community, non-professional singers, and welcomes new members for the fall season.  We perform twice-yearly in Healdsburg and a second location early in December during the holiday season and then again in the late April or early May.

Join us to enjoy the performances or as a performer — either way you can be a part of our musical community.

The Healdsburg Chorus is happy to announce the awarding of the 2023 Betty Zukov and Susan Nelson Music Scholarship.  Adeline Waterman, singer/actor, and Sam Vanden Heuval, singer/songwriter/guitarist, from the Healdsburg High School Class of 2023, were awarded $500 scholarships for future studies.

The award were made possible through the Healdsburg Chorus Scholarship Fund.  The 2022 award winner was Danial Mahmoudi, performance pianist from Healdsburg High School.

The Betty Zukov Music Scholarship was created in honor of the founding director of the Healdsburg Chorus, beloved teacher and Healdsburg resident Betty Zukov. In April 2019, the Healdsburg Chorus board of directors changed the name of the scholarship to honor, in addition to Betty Zukov, our long-time accompanist Susan Nelson who founded the chorus with Betty in 1988 and retired from the accompanist position in 2019. The scholarship will again be available in 2024 to a graduating high school senior who is a resident of Healdsburg with a history of involvement in music, a demonstrated talent in music, and an interest in a music-related career.

Further details and application form are available at the Healdsburg High School Counseling Office or here.

As our mission statement says, we…

  • are a diverse group of non-professional singers
  • are committed to celebrating the joy of song and to creating extraordinary musical experiences for our audiences
  • believe that music plays a vital role in building community as it transcends diversity and brings people together
  • strive to share our passion for music with the community
  • keep our Chorus open to all who want to sing
  • continually work to improve our musicianship by performing music we love and that challenges us
