Important Updates

Many of you have reached out to express your concern and offer support during this incredibly challenging time. It’s impossible to adequately express how much that means to the entire chorus! Links are provided below to the current fundraisers supporting the chorus. If you already purchased tickets to any events through June, an email has been sent to you with your refund or donation options.

We live to sing. We love to sing together – and for you!
