Canzona is a select auditioned ensemble of 22-26 females singers from throughout San Luis obispo county. Now in its 11th season, Canzona presents two concerts each year, in November and March, featuring a wide variety of choral repertoire for women’s voices: from classical to modern, ethnic to traditional, and sacred to secular.
Though we have been apart physically for a year,
music continues to draw us together at the heart.
Please enjoy our most recent virtual choir pieces!
