SMC 2019

We look forward to coming together for an afternoon of celebrating life through music as the sound of the choir and ensemble suspend us, breathless, in time.  As noted in the Singing Revolution - "We may be strangers when the song starts, but we'll be friends when the song ends."


“This, for me, is the whole gift of choral music — that we can speak to one another in a deeper, more authentic emotional language for which there simply aren’t words.” Eric Whitacre
