2020 - 2021

The moments Chorale singers were able to stand next to each other and sing are treasured memories. Now the Chorale must rehearse for performances in a format and at a time that assures the safety of singers and supporters. As we practice wonderful music selected by our new Music Director, Steven Lipsitt, and our programming committee, making future plans is a large part of this Season's adventure.
