We Need Your Support
Gone are the days when local churches donated space to us. Rehearsal space rent consumes the majority of our budget and dues and ticket sales alone don't make ends meet. Please consider making a donation to help us serve the community and help members with instruments and participation. Your continued generosity has been invaluable the last 30 years and we THANK YOU! Our Treasurer is happy to assist you or answer your questions.
