Our talented section leaders provide vocal coaching at each rehearsal and are also available to provide individual singing lessons.
“Mark embodies whatever feeling we put out and lets us know that he is high on us, and then let’s us get high off him.”
“The Choir has brought this shower singer out of the closet (or shower). Who needs team sports when you have a group of people who play and sing beautifully together under the guidance of gifted teacher and composer, Mark Growden.”
“I feel lucky to have an opportunity to sing with such an amazing group of singers. From the first night, Mark’s arrangements and the richness of sound that came together was just awesome. Thanks for calling me to the Calling All Choir!”
“Choir has turned out to be so much better than my wildest expectations. The bar is high but the supports, resources, and music education that the director Mark Growden and his team supply, ensure that anyone willing to sing, can–even someone with a thin voice and hearing aids like myself. If you want to sing, check it out”
“I was the complete newbie who was affected enough by last year’s finale to take a chance and go to Song Camp. The Choir experience has exceeded my expectations! I’m an extreme novice beginner, who with an enthusiastic gifted director and community spirit, has begun to discover one’s voice enough to perform in this season’s finale!”
“What a fantastic performance. A bright & unbridled night!”
“I am so glad I was there to witness such a beautiful event! The feelings I had while listening were so heart-centered.”
“In the Spring Finales, when Mark gave us the signal to give it all… I was down in the front row so I heard and felt everyone do just that – give their all. Wow. I felt like the Grinch who Stole Christmas where my heart suddenly grew.”
