Hopefully I've convinced you that there's good reason to get out and express your inner Joan Sutherland or Pavarotti. And if I have, here are two choirs you can join. The best part is, you don't even need to audition. You just need to love singing, enjoy laughing and be open to meeting new friends.
The Open Door Singers began as a Gospel Choir. There was such a strong demand for a community choir that in 2013, a new choir was formed for those wishing to branch out beyond gospel music. You can choose to sing in one or both choirs. There is a combined community of nearly 300 people in these choirs.
