The Grammy Award for Best Choral Performance has been awarded since 1961. There have been several minor changes to the name of the award over this time:

  • In 1961 the award was known as Best Classical Performance - Choral (including oratorio)
  • From 1962 to 1964 it was awarded as Best Classical Performance - Choral (other than opera)
  • In 1965, 1969, 1971, 1977 to 1978 and 1982 to 1991 it was awarded as Best Choral Performance (other than opera)
  • From 1966 to 1968 it was awarded as Best Classical Choral Performance (other than opera)
  • In 1970, 1973 to 1976 and 1979 to 1981 it was awarded as Best Choral Performance, Classical (other than opera)
  • In 1972 it was awarded as Best Choral Performance - Classical
  • From 1992 to 1994 it was awarded as Best Performance of a Choral Work
  • 1995 to the present the award has been known as Best Choral Performance

Prior to 1961 the awards for opera and choral performances were combined into a single award for Best Classical Performance, Operatic or Choral.

Until 2016, awards were given to the choral conductor and to the orchestra conductor if an orchestra is on the recording, and to the choral director or chorus master if applicable. The choir and/or the orchestra did not receive an award. From 2017, the choir (or 'choral organization' as it is called in the Grammy rules) does receive a Grammy Award as an ensemble.

Years reflect the year in which the Grammy Awards were presented, for works released in the previous year.
