About Soli Deo Gloria

Soli Deo Gloria is the premier women’s ensemble in the Central Valley.  We are a chorale of 16-20 women who strive to sing at the highest level of excellence and, as our name means, “to the glory of God alone.”  (This phrase, or the initials “SDG,” was often added by the eminent composer J.S. Bach at the end of his compositions.)

We have a top-notch artistic director, Dr. Julie Carter (see separate bio), who pushes us to do our best, and we love her for it.

We currently perform two programs per year, one at the end of each semester in the fall and spring, and rehearse once a week, 3-4 weeks per month, to prepare for the concerts.  We usually try to repeat the program.

Soli Deo Gloria of San Joaquin Valley, Inc. is a California nonprofit benefit corporation.  We are registered with the IRS and the state as a charity (also known as a 501(c)(3) entity) which is eligible for your tax-deductible contributions.

Our bylaws provide:

“The primary objectives and purposes of this corporation shall be:

“(a) To illuminate truth and beauty through the choral artistry of a select women’s ensemble.

“(b) To glorify God through the faithful interpretation of millenia of choral music.

“(c) To encourage the audience in worship and/or in learning more about Jesus Christ.

“(d) To deepen the chorale members’ commitment to Jesus Christ as their Savior.

“(e) To foster and cultivate the musical education interests of the chorale and the residents of the San Joaquin Valley.”
