CSC has begun meeting in person, MASKED and DISTANCED!!

CSC has begun meeting in person with careful compliance to public health guidelines!  Until guidelines are changed, the chorus is meeting outdoors, masked, and socially distanced.  Inclement weather will be accommodated by moving indoors to a vast warehouse space, still with open doors for maximum air circulation.  Soon (perhaps June 2021), we hope to move inside our normal rehearsal space at the Valley Temple.  All health protocols will be strictly followed.  For members and guests who are not ready for in-person meetings, we provide a Zoom link for virtual attendance.  Contact us at [email protected] to obtain that link.

Young Women & Young Men Leap Into Harmony Festival

A successful Leap Into Harmony Festival was held at McAuley High School in College Hill, Cincinnati, on February 29, 2020.  Thanks to all who shared in the success of the one-day event!  Stacey St. John and Rich Lapp directed the two choruses, who each learned and performed three songs there!  Glamour and Darlington Brothers Quartets helped the students learn their parts and sing them very well!  Chorus members from Delta Kings, Southern Gateway, and Cincinnati Sound worked behind the scenes, and our sponsors provided funding for this event.  Thanks to Cincinnati Container Company, Industrial Mechanical Contractors, Inc., Prestige Travel, Inc., Harmony Heartland REgion #4 Swett Adelines Int'l, Greater Cincinnati Choral Consortium, and Mercy McAuley for your extra support!!
