The Hopewell Valley Chorus is an amateur, unauditioned adult community chorus located in Pennington, New Jersey who perform two or three times a year locally, and participate in a variety of community outreach activities.

The Hopewell Valley Chorus was also one of last year’s Hopewell Harvest Fair grant recipients, receiving funds toward their March concert “Spring into Song,” a free annual concert with performances by vocal groups based in or with close ties to the Hopewell Valley including the Trenton Children’s Chorus (TCC) and the Hopewell Valley Central High School a cappella. Money raised at that concert enable the Hopewell Valley Chorus to send three TCC members to the Albemarle Summer Music Program and one to the Westminster Middle School Summer Vocal Camp.

The Hopewell Harvest Fair is proud to support this and many other local organizations and events. If you want to get involved in helping out, please email volunteer@hopewellharvestfair.org.
