About

8 May

If you are visiting this site for the first time and are interested in joining the choir, please email me (cjanegosine@gmail.com) for more information. While we are not meeting in person during the pandemic, we are providing resources for continuing to practice during self isolation.

The choir has a new password-protected website with lots of resources for home practice with breathing and physical exercises, warm-ups and songs (with audio tracks and video). If you would like access to these resources, please email me for more information.

Take care and keep singing!
