Many thanks to all the people who helped make our Fall concert a great success. We had a large and enthusiastic audience, and it was wonderful to be singing in person once again.
 
We are currently on break until we begin rehearsing for our next concert, which will be on June 4, 2023, at the Fine Arts Center, on the UMass campus. Our first rehearsal will be on January 24.

Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings, 7:30 PM-9:30 PM at the South Congregational Church, 1066 South East Street, in Amherst. The only prerequisite for joining is that you have prior experience singing in a choir or chorus, and we invite you to contact us if you are interested in joining. We have openings for all voice parts, but we especially need tenors and basses.

We want everyone to feel as safe as possible during rehearsals and at the concert. Proof of vaccination is required. Masks are not mandatory, but singers may wear masks if they wish.
