Cabrillo College's Westside Community Folk & Gospel Choir is based in the Westside Community of Santa Cruz, California. We now have over 70 members drawn from the surrounding area. The choir is comprised of people who just love singing! We don't have auditions before people join and we don't expect any level of musical knowledge or expertise from our members. We sing a selection of songs of different genres with an emphasis on folk songs & gospel music. If you'd like to join us and you live in the area you'll be welcome. If you'd like to see us in concert, see below for the dates/times of our upcoming concerts.


Our next performance is our winter concert on Monday, May 18, 2019 @ 8:00 PM in Cabrillo’s Samper Recital Hall. Admission is free with a donation!
