Mission & Values


Our Mission

The mission of Clerestory as a professional, all-male vocal ensemble is to engage, enlighten, and inspire both audience and performer by bringing the highest level of artistic excellence to a wide range of choral music for performances and recordings in the greater San Francisco Bay area.


Elaboration of Values

We believe that the collaboration of individual voices together in a high quality chamber ensemble produces a stirring/thrilling experience of camaraderie amongst the performers that is then shared by the audience. The performance breathes life into each piece, uniting both singer and listener with the heart of the composer. Therefore, we value live performance, collaboration with other artists, and interaction with living composers. We also desire to make this music easily accessible by making free recordings available and keeping concert pricing affordable. And because we believe in the longevity of our mission, we aim for sustainability and wise stewardship in accomplishing these goals.
