This community choir aims to put the fun back into singing! Have you always thought you couldn't sing, or maybe only in the shower? Here's your chance to join a supportive and lively group of like-minded individuals who just want to raise their voices in song: no expectations, no performance anxiety, no experience necessary! We will be singing from a variety of traditions: chants, rounds, SATB, folk songs, songs in other languages, improv....you name it, we'll try it -- and have fun doing it!!
