... and book a Barbershop Quartet to serenade your sweetheart!
With holiday season over, it's time to dust off some of the old repertoire and add a new piece or two. Valentine's Day is coming as well as requests for performances.
It's also time to introduce new people to our chorus and invite them into our membership. More people, fuller sound, greater opportunity to perform and expand our circle of friends. Auditions (vocal assessments) are open to everyone.
There's a place for you in the choir!
