The San Gabriel Valley Choral Company (SGVCC) was founded by Dr. Thomas M. Miyake in September 1995 to provide local singers the opportunity to “stretch their minds and vocal chords.” The ensemble is comprised of singers from the San Gabriel Valley, the Inland Empire and other local communities. Their repertoire has included music from the Renaissance period to works of the late 20th century. Along with more traditional selections, music performed has included avant-garde, jazz, a Broadway musical review, and staged productions.
In March 1999, the SGVCC was selected to perform at the American Choral Directors Association/California Music Educators Association annual convention. In 2002, the SGVCC went on a concert tour of China.
The SGVCC continued its tradition of fine choral music with Artistic Director Zanaida Robles taking the reins at the beginning of its 2012-2013 season.
