This has always been a "Pay-It-Forward" Choir.

Since the beginning of the choir in 2010, concerts have been presented with no admission fees and donations have been solicited from the audience in support of featured local charities - each of which participates in the concert as presenters. This section of our website shows the donations made and lists the charities involved.
