About Vocal Arts

The purpose of the San Luis Obispo Vocal Arts is to provide a vehicle for the musical expression of its members through increasing their musical abilities and knowledge of both modern and classical music and to expand their musical experience through the medium of touring and competition. Its aim is to enhance the cultural environment of the county through the presentation of concerts, thereby stimulating public interest and appreciation of fine choral music.

The Vocal Arts has been performing in San Luis Obispo County and around the world since 1977, under the leadership of founder and Musical Director Gary Lamprecht. Members must audition each year and all music is memorized for performances. The season begins in early September with three main concert series in December, March/April and June. Rehearsal is weekly on Tuesday evenings at Morro Bay High School. For information on auditions, see the "Join Us" tab on this website.
