About the choir

The Westside Folk & Gospel Choir of Cabrillo College is based in the Westside Community of Santa Cruz, California. We typically have over 70 members drawn from the surrounding area of all ages.

The choir is comprised of people who simply 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, you'll be welcome. If you'd like to see us in concert, see below for the dates/times of our upcoming concerts.

The Westside Folk & Gospel Choir is directed by Jussi Doherty.


The Westside Choir will have a LIVE concert in Cabrillo College's Samper Recital Hall on Monday, December 12, 2022, at 8:00 PM. For ticket information, please visit the box office website. In the meantime, you are welcome to enjoy our past performances and virtual choir videos on YouTube.
