Dear Friends and Fans of The Festival Chorus,
This year has been like no other. And not being able to rehearse and perform together in person, imparts a deep sense of loss in all of our members who love that interaction, and…we sure miss you! The reward for all of the rehearsing has always been to see your happy faces out in the theatre.
But we couldn’t just stop. We have found a way to still be together through the magic of Zoom. This is new territory for us, so there’s been a learning curve but it allows the Chorus to continue to learn new music and connect with each other.
Our first recording of IN FLANDERS FIELDS will be posted on November 9th via our brand new YouTube channel, plus we have planned a series of digital offerings for Christmas and into the New Year. That’s the good news!
…the bad news is that we will have no revenue coming in for our concerts, and our fundraising casino was cancelled in May. The Festival Chorus has a long history of resiliency but we still need YOUR help!
We hope you will consider donating to keep The Festival Chorus humming along through 2021, until we can see our cherished audience again.
There are three options for sending a donation – every little bit helps us!

Yours in Song,
THE FESTIVAL CHORUS
