The Southern California Mormon Choir is a choir based in Southern California that was formed in 1953 under the auspices of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.[1] The choir performs concerts of classical, sacred, folk, patriotic, and popular choral music throughout the Southern California area.

The choir was organized by H. Frederick Davis (1909-2000), a Tonga-born, New Zealand raised Latter-day Saint.[2] The current director is Jan Bills, a professional harpist with a degree in music from Brigham Young University. [3][4]
