Upcoming Events

What is your favorite thing about singing with DGCS?

I learned a lot from chorus rehearsals and performance. The blending of parts, the typical mood of different composer, and how to show them up, to experience their emotions.

Why do you love to sing?

The opportunity to sing is a joy to be shared. Singing is good for the spirit with the plus of enhancing brainpower.

What is your favorite thing about singing with DGCS?

Constantly being challenged musically, and making great friends!

Singing is both challenging and relaxing at the same time. I love being part of recreating a work of art.
