About Us

Who We Are
Samantics is a non-profit singing group that exists to build public appreciation for the widest possible range of vocal music through performance and education. Founded in 2009, the 30-person chorus hails from Sacramento, Natomas, Davis, Galt, Vacaville, Fairfield, Suisun, Benicia, Vallejo and Glen Ellen, and performs throughout the greater Sacramento Valley and Bay Area. For each concert, Samantics strives to provide an entertaining mixture of music ranging from classical to Vaudeville, ensuring that a Samantics concert is like no other. Samantics’ two educational goals are (1) to introduce audiences to neglected music in order to keep that music alive, and (2) to encourage young singers in their studies and careers. Toward those ends, in its first five years, Samantics has publicly presented over 600 songs in concert and has awarded over $6,000 in scholarships.
