The SAN JOAQUIN CHORALE was founded in 1994 by conductor and musical director Dr. Roy L. Klassen, and performed for several years as the Fresno Pacific Chorale.  Daniel Bishop currently directs the group.

It is an auditioned Fresno-area community choir dedicated to the performance of quality literature of sacred and secular repertoire in a concert setting. The choir’s membership is drawn from communities throughout the Central Valley of California.

We rejoice in the gift of choral music by dedicating ourselves to the quality performance of sacred and secular music in a concert setting.
