The group is open for anyone in 6th grade through college. Rehearsals are fun and casual, and we brainstorm ideas for new pieces to learn. If you hear a tune on the radio and you like it, write down the title and bring it to rehearsal. We will get the music and give it a try.
Bring your singing voices and/or instruments to rehearsals. We would love to see you on any Sunday! The adult leaders of these groups are Melissa Blankestyn, Gary Bacon, Rick Gosch and Mary Myers.
