About Buffalo Choral Arts Society

Over 50 years of musical excellence

Performing a variety of musical genres throughout Western New York

Buffalo Choral Arts Society (BCAS) is a 115-voice auditioned choral ensemble under the direction of Marcia A. Giambrone, who has served as Conductor and Music Director since 1987.

During her tenure, the chorus has broadened its scope to perform a wide range of musical genres from classical to sacred to Broadway. BCAS members come from all walks of life, and our diverse performance venues and varied repertoire are the hallmark of this ensemble.
