We've got some great shows coming up that you won't want to miss, so mark your calendars now! Our choruses have some fun repertoire lined up that will be sure to get your toes tapping. If you've got the theme song from the "Golden Girls" in your head, you know what we're talking about! Our Minneapolis and St. Paul Choruses will be singing songs about friendship. We got some familiar tunes and some new favorites lined up. Our Edina chorus is heading "Back to Broadway" with lots of old favorites from classic musicals. We are having the best time rehearsing these songs and we can't wait to share them with you!
