It is with heavy hearts that after so many wonderful years and precious memories of children growing and singing with Crescendo, we are officially announcing that we have permanently suspended operations.

 We are extremely grateful for the many years of making beautiful music with children in the Spokane area and the support we received from other organizations and individuals who made Crescendo Community Chorus successful for so long: St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, Bethany Presbyterian Church, Holy Names Music Center... and the person who led with great passion, Mrs. Sharon Smith, who spent over a decade building personal relationships with each child and helping them all build confidence with their singing voices.

On a positive note, we have been in close contact with Spokane Area Youth Choirs (SAYChoirs) who have been able to carry on through the pandemic and are eager to welcome students who are still seeking a quality choral experience. Please visit their website for more information:

Our email and Facebook page will remain active a short while longer. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at:
