Santa Rosa Symphony Honor Choir

Guest Artist

The Santa Rosa Symphony Honor Choir, under the direction of SRS Choral Director Robert Worth, was officially formed in the Fall of 2001 to perform Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in a September 11 memorial concert. This formal designation came after many years of collaborations between the Santa Rosa Symphony, the Sonoma County Bach Choir, the Santa Rosa High School Concert Choir and other groups. The group serves as the symphony chorus for the Santa Rosa Symphony.

The Honor Choir brings together singers specifically for each SRS choral concert, drawing on a diverse community of singers, including high school students from throughout Sonoma County, college students at Sonoma State University and Santa Rosa Junior College, and community members from all walks of life.

Projects to date have included the Mozart Requiem (Fall, 2003), Brahms Requiem (Fall, 2002), the Britten Spring Symphony (Spring, 2004) the Bernstein Chichester Psalms and Karolju (December, 2004), the Lord Nelson Mass (December 2008). Singers are auditioned at the beginning of each project. Interested singers are invited to contact Honor Choir director Bob Worth at 707-664-2218 ( for further details on how to join the group.
