Our Performances

The full chorus performs two concerts a year, with smaller groups occasionally performing at local events and retirement homes. Concerts feature a variety of music. The chorus emphasizes four-part harmony in musical styles that are fun to sing and hear – show tunes, folk songs, classical, jazz, pop, Americana, and more.
