Audition policy: The Mayflower Community Chorus has no formal auditions, but members must meet certain musical qualifications. Being a member of the Chorus requires regular attendance to build both shared choral experience and knowledge. We become an ensemble when you go from “I know this” to “We know this together” and from “I can do this” to “We can do this together.”

The Love Notes is a co-ed a cappella group based in San Francisco. We sing love songs, anti-love songs, and everything in between. We can be found singing spontaneously in coffee shops in Santa Cruz, harmonizing in car rides, belting it out at karaoke, or of course practicing at our weekly rehearsals. We are thrilled to be a part of the amazing a cappella community in the Bay Area, and are so grateful to be able to share music with each other and the public.

We're Scales of the City, a San Francisco co-ed a cappella group that performs all around the Bay Area. Based on the model of a collegiate glee club, we're a group of performers who love singing pop music from our childhoods and today, with a sprinkling of showtunes just for kicks. We're all about making great music to share, and having a great time doing it.

Type: Mixed Contemporary Semi-Pro  Hometown: San Francisco

Audition policy: Scales of the City holds auditions at the beginning of each season (usually in January) and occasionally on an as-needed basis to fill vacant positions in the group.


Led by Pollyanna Bush on the 3rd Saturday of every month, SoarSing unites people and offers soul nourishment through the magic of group singing. During the interactive session, participants are invited to connect with others through vocal expression, guided to sing in harmony with interlocking melodic and rhythmic parts and encouraged to explore their creative impulses in a welcoming and supportive environment.

Dotter's Knot brings a fresh approach to some old familiar ren faire favorites, as well as introducing the audience to some little known material drawn from traditional folk music, with a smattering of original pieces. We feature memorable, sing-able, audience-pleasing melodies, and intricate harmony.
