Concert Arts Singers aka Choral Arts Singers is a group of people who love to make great music. And making great music is fun so we work hard but enjoy the work. There is a rich history of providing quality music to the tri-county area.
We have some long term members however there is a good mix with newer members. Each part (soprano, alto, tenor and bass) have a section leader you can ask questions of. The director and board members will also field questions about the group.
Come give us a try (NO auditions necessary). We ask you give us 3 weeks as even we have an off week. If you do not want to come alone bring a friend. We are alway looking for new talent.
