Bucks County Women’s Chorus

The 85-voice Bucks County Women’s Chorus (BCWC) was founded in 2012 for the purpose of bringing together women of all ages and skill levels who love to sing. The non-auditioned ensemble has, since that time, become known throughout the region for its fun and uplifting performances and is in high demand throughout the Greater Philadelphia area.

During the last 10 years, BCWC has presented more than 100 concerts in the local region, and in 2018 and 2019 was invited to sing at the White House Holiday Open House and then with the rock band Foreigner on its 2019 national tour when they appeared in the Philadelphia region.

The chorus has also performed at the Empire State Building and at other historic locations such as Pennsbury Manor, the Pearl S. Buck property, Washington Crossing Park, and the Mercer Museum. Always keen to give back to the community, BCWC donates proceeds from many of its concerts to local arts- and women’s-related charities.

Members of BCWC also embark on an international concert tour every other year. Thus far, their travels have taken them to Italy, Hungary, Austria, Finland, Sweden, and Estonia, where they have sung in incredible venues on their own as well as with local ensembles from those destinations. In 2022, the 50-voice tour choir will travel to Ireland with performance stops in Cobh, Dublin, and Belfast.

Artistic Director Patricia Guth is the founder of Bucks County Women’s Chorus (BCWC) and a long-time conductor and music educator. A graduate of the prestigious Westminster Choir College of Princeton, New Jersey, Pat has taught in both public and private schools and led several church choirs before retiring in 2018 after 42 years in music ministry. She is also an accomplished accompanist. Pat’s foremost musical goal is to spread the love of singing to all, regardless of age and skill level, and she believes that BCWC has been an excellent vehicle for this. She is also a published writer of two children’s books, is an avid reader, enjoys cooking and baking, likes to knit, and loves to travel with family and friends. She’s been married for 40 years to Gary, also a musician, and has two grown children, Ryan and Emily, and two adorable grandsons, Thomas and Lincoln.
