We have a place for everyone – soloists, small group, and large group singers; “movers”, “dancers”, and people who just want to hold their music and sing. Please sign up ASAP using our Sign-Up form so we know how many people to expect. The concert line-up and rehearsal schedule will be based upon the people who commit to take part.
