  1. These Choral Sounds concerts are always great! This will be our third or fourth year going. It’s wonderful to have such a great group in our community.
    If you haven’t checked it out, please do! And kids are free!

  2. This article says we have 60, but the number is actually closer to 70 this year! You will notice the difference with our added voices… all very talented, and more voices= bigger+better sound! 🙂 Plus, our new conductor from the UW music program is great! He’s even conducted a choral performance for the Queen.
