  • Choral-Aires Chorus Hosts Guest Night Jan 16, 2015 5:22 PM
    Sing those Winter Blues Away! Visit the Choral-Aires Chorus on Monday, January 26 at 7pm when we host a Guest Night for anyone interested in learning more about the chorus. We’re a vibrant group of more than 100 women who love to sing a cappella harmony, love making new friends and love to have fun. We perform at community events, ballgames, parties and in competitions. We’re the current Regional champs and will compete for the title of Sweet Adelines International Champion in Las Vegas this fall. There are days when it seems winter will never end. Although this winter has certainly been kinder than the last, spring sometimes feels very far away. Hard to even imagine, some days. No matter how gray the day, an evening of singing with some of your favorite people is a great way to put the sunshine back into your life. You don’t have to be a professional musician, you don’t even have to read music. You just have to love music and be willing to learn from our amazing directors and coaches. Stop by our Guest Night. We meet at Redeemer Lutheran Church Recreation Center in Elmhurst, at the corner of Kenilworth Ave. and St. Charles Road. We’d love to see you and help you make the the dark days of winter a whole lot brighter! Visit our website, www.choral-aires.com to learn more about us.
