Wow! Our choir is so happy singing together, that for the Fall 2015 season we are auditioning Basses only. Sorry Sops, Altos and Tenors -- you may get a chance next season.

To qualify, all you need is a solid voice, a good ear and a great attitude.

Rehearsals start in September for our Christmas concert season.

Reading music is an asset but not a necessity.
