Due to COVID-19 all rehearsals and performances have been postponed until further notice.  For more details, see the Activities section below.


To provide an opportunity for men and women who want to experience the joy of singing and give mutual support as they engage, enrich, and inspire the community by presenting choral music.


We find great joy in learning new songs, singing together and performing within the surrounding communities.


however because of the pandemic, we were sad and disappointed when we could no longer rehearse or perform for our friends, family, and others in the community at our Annual Spring Concert.

The Board of Directors met June 10th at the Church of Christ to discuss what we needed to know to prepare for a safe return to sing together.  We agreed that until free to gather together without masks, probably sometime past 3rd stage of reopening, we will continue to stay home.

Thanks to a grant from the Chambers Foundation, we have a large selection of new music to sing when able to get together, until then be safe and be well.

Watch for an announcement when rehearsals return.
