Why Visit an Open House?

Any visitor who comes during an open house has the opportunity to win a drawing prize! There will also be treats on the way out. You have the option to sit among the choir and participate, or you may choose to sit in the back and observe. Other than that, guests are always welcome to come by and observe a rehearsal.

Please call if you have any questions: (509) 999-3819

Sharon Smith's Final Season with Crescendo
After more than a decade of exceptional service to the organization, we are formally announcing that this year will be Sharon Smith's final year as the Artistic Director of Crescendo Community Chorus.

We are extremely excited for the magic that Sharon will once again work in our kids this season in what we are calling "A Year of Favorites."

Our new Artistic Director will be announced at the conclusion of our semester. While it is exciting to see the possibilities in the future of our program, we will deeply miss Sharon and all that she has done to grow our children.

Please mark your calendars for our final concert with Mrs. Smith on May 8th. More details about this night will be posted soon.
Thank you to everyone who came to our holiday concert! We are especially thankful to our guest musicians who accompanied with the flute and French horn. It was a beautiful evening. Our singers should be very pleased with their performance!

We also concluded our holiday raffle, drawing two winners who both ended up being choir families--one from each choir! How fun! It was a successful raffle, with funds reaching our goal of over $1000 to be used for scholarships. Thank you to everyone who participated, both in giving of donations and purchasing tickets.
