Summer Choral Intensive Goes Virtual!

SACRA/PROFANA is excited to announce that our Summer Choral Intensive will continue for the seventh year in a new online environment.

Due to the restrictions required in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and to protect the health of our singers and participants, SACRA/PROFANA will not conduct the camp in person at Point Loma Nazarene University as originally planned.  We still want to continue our mission of providing high level choral music education opportunities to middle and high school students in San Diego.  In our new online format, we will be able to invite students across the country!

We will build on the virtual choir model by adding elements that would normally be part of SCI such as individual instruction, group voice lessons, music theory, musicianship and small group opportunities.

The online camp will include:

  •  –  Production of four virtual choir videos
  •  –  Voice master class opportunities with area voice teachers
  •  –  Music theory class
  •  –  Small groups
  •  –  Theme days

Costs for SCI have been significantly reduced to ensure everyone who wants to participate has the opportunity.  Regular registration is $50 for the five day camp.  Thanks to the generous support of the California Arts Council and Key of She, we are able to offer need based scholarships that can lower the cost to $15.

Looking Up and How to Go On Concerts Postponed

SACRA/PROFANA and St. James-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church regret that recent concerns surrounding the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus have made it necessary for us to postpone the upcoming concert, SACRA/PROFANA: Looking Up!, on Sunday, March 22nd.

The performance has been tentatively rescheduled for October 25th, and all ticket sales will be honored at that time. If you prefer to return your ticket in exchange for a charitable contribution or a refund, please contact St. James by-the-Sea at 858-459-3421 or

SACRA/PROFANA has also made the difficult decision to cancel our final concert of the season Moving Forward:  How to Go On.  Much of the music planned for this performance will be incorporated in one of our concerts during Season 12.

If you want to return your ticket in exchange for a charitable contribution or a refund, please contact us at

SACRA/PROFANA | A Holiday Album

An album of heart-warming December music, with fresh compositions & holiday favorites performed by San Diego’s premiere vocalists

Although we have been wooing the ears of San Diego for over a decade, collaborating with everyone from the San Diego Opera and the San Diego Symphony to the La Jolla Playhouse (with rave reviews alongside), the group has only produced one hit CD back in 2012: “Elegies and Ecstasies.” While we actively post our live performances on YouTube and SoundCloud, we think it’s about time that we got back in the studio to bring you some crisp, polished tracks, and infuse a dose of high-quality contemporary choral music to your life.
