Who Can Join?
We invite any person who likes singing and harmonizing, and who enjoys sharing the fellowship of other good-natured people. People from many walks of life and between the ages of 8 and 98 have been part of our group. You don't have to know how to read music; you just have to love to sing. Guests are always welcome, so why not pay us a visit.

You will be placed in the proper voice section and given all the help you need to learn your part. An application can be obtained from the Chapter Development Vice President or Chapter Secretary.
