A Message from VCC Artistic Director, Daryl Timmer

Amidst the uncertainty of recent world events, we find ourselves seeking constancy and moments of refuge.  We truly believe music can and does provide such a place.  We hope you fondly remember all of your experiences with the VCC and that they have indeed been moments of refuge.  In spite of the challenges of the last two years, our spirit has been revitalized and the VCC's commitment to the Saint Croix Valley community and beyond is as heartfelt as ever.

  • This past year you were able to return to in-person concerts!  We delighted our audiences by successfully presenting our Christmas at the Courthouse and The Reason We Sing concerts.
  • You've had the opportunity to get to know many of our singers via our social media platforms.
  • We are so excited to be performing all of our usual in-person concerts for our 2022-2023 Season.

We lift our voices together with YOU, our treasured patrons and audience members, to move forward into this, our 48th season.

Who We Are

The Valley Chamber Chorale (VCC) is a strong community voice for the Saint Croix Valley based in Stillwater, MN.  It is the only highly skilled amateur choir in the vicinity and has been a beloved cultural asset since 1975.  It's 35+ voices ranging in age from 18-80 reach an audience of 1,600 people each year.  VCC members are from all walks of life, as is its audience.  

Our History

The Valley Chamber Chorale was originally formed in 1975 as a creative outlet for adults with previous musical experience who sought an opportunity to perform sophisticated works not normally attempted by church choirs and other singing groups.  The Chorale was incorporated in 1977 as a nonprofit organization and is a member of Chorus America.  The 2022-2023 season marks the Chorale's 48th year.  Current Artistic Director,  Daryl Timmer, is now in his 7th year leading the VCC.

Our Mission

To embrace the challenge of performing diverse and compelling music to stir emotions and delight our patrons.

Music Over The Years

The strengths of the Valley Chamber Chorale lie in the immense talent and dedication of the singers and in the diverse and unusual concert programming.  All concerts are self-produced by Chorale volunteers.  Artistic Director Daryl Timmer purposely fills every concert with selections that are familiar as well as unique and less familiar.  Through creative programming, he challenges the audience to experience a greater depth of choral music.

Over the years, the Chorale has developed the technical and musical artistry required to successfully perform the most demanding of choral works.  Notable accomplishments of the Chorale include:

  • Requiem - Mozart
  • Requiem for the Living - Dan Forrest
  • The Wedding - Hussein Janmohamed Commission
  • What Child Is This - Amy Gordon Commission
  • The Lord Nelson Mass - Hayden
  • Requiem - Rutter
