The Williamsburg Women's Chorus is a group of all-female voices dedicated to preserving women's choral music for future generations. The only group of its kind in the area, the Chorus was founded in 1965 to encourage appreciation for the rich heritage of women's choral literature. Members come from a variety of musical backgrounds and all parts of the community. For over 50 years, the Chorus has performed major choral works for the Williamsburg area.

There are two major concerts each year, one in the winter and one in the spring. At the winter concert, the Chorus provides a venue for the Williamsburg Youth Chorale and a local middle or high school choir. Additionally at the winter concert, the recipients of our vocal scholarship join us on stage.
The Chorus performs an outreach concert each year at an active adult community in the Williamsburg area.
The Chorus is sustained by membership dues, public donations, ticket sales, and grants. The grants are supplied from the Williamsburg Area Arts Commission, the Junior Woman’s Club of Williamsburg, and the Williamsburg Community Foundation.
The Choraliers is an ambassador ensemble of the Chorus. This group performs at different venues across the area. Choraliers membership is by director's invitation only.
