Ten years ago I learned about the Congressional Chorus from a bulletin board flyer outside the Cups & Company cafe in the basement of Senate office buildings. This group was founded over 30 years ago by Capitol Hill staff like I was then. I took a chance and auditioned, and am so glad I did! Rehearsing with this group after work (and some Saturdays), and performing in concerts has been a highlight of my life. Not only do I have fun and sharpen my musical skills (vocal, sight reading), but I've also made some life-long friends. I am so proud that our chorus family has grown to include the kids' and seniors' choruses, and honored to now be serving as the chorus board president.
All of this is possible thanks to support from federal and local arts grants, concert ticket sales and dues from singers, and donations from corporations and individuals like you. These resources support our full-time artistic director and two part-time staff members, as well as everything that goes into our performances (venue rentals, lighting and sound, accompanists, etc). They also help us provide scholarships to kids and adults who may not otherwise be able to afford to participate, and support transportation to concerts for our seniors' chorus members. We serve our local Washington, DC community by performing several free and low-cost concerts and helping local artists grow through collaborative performances and the commissioning of new music. We are grateful for every dollar donated toward our cause! THANK YOU!
