Resources and Other Materials

The Choral Society believes that preparation for our performances goes way beyond learning the music itself. At times, we create or find interesting information that brings us closer to the music and/or the composer.

Below you will find items that we have gathered that we feel should be shared with choral music lovers everywhere. We hope you enjoy this information and encourage you to share it with your friends and family.
