This subset of singers from the main chorus presents free concerts that bring choral music to the general public in community settings, including those who, for mobility or health reasons, cannot attend performances in the traditional concert setting. The Outreach Singers perform in places such as hospices, veterans' homes, senior centers, homeless shelters and retirement homes, and strive to recreate the concert-going experience for their audiences. Sing-alongs actively involve audience members and add to the powerful and positive musical experience. The intimate performances in patient care and senior settings allow the Singers to establish a strong rapport with the audience, create an uplifting experience, and deliver a musical respite for patients and staff alike.

“We're still high over the wonderful concert that [The Outreach Singers] performed on Saturday at [our retirement community]. I get teary when I think of many of those songs and what they mean/meant to that generation. I could not sing some of them I was so choked up. It was a really moving experience, and the [residents] are still talking about it. Thank you so much for what you did to make all those people feel so very cherished and so happy. You made music in their souls.” – Attendee at a recent Outreach Singers performance

“It was such a blessing to have the chorus sing for the patients, and I know that they really appreciated the beautiful music. (Many of them have told me so!) We are grateful for your generosity in donating your time and talents and look forward to having you back next year!”
