Videos of our virtual Spring and Summer 2021 seasons!
Our Summer 2021 virtual season video, produced by director Xin SU, is now available! It features songs in three languages: English, Portuguese (Brazil), and Filipino. These colorful summer songs are “Oh, the Summer”, “Estrela, E Lua Nova” (“Star, It’s the New Moon”), and “Kaming Magmamani” (“We, Peanut Vendors”). Click here to enjoy!
Xin Su also produced our virtual Spring 2021 season video. It combines three songs of empowerment and hope: “A Path to Each Other”, “Blackbird”, and “The Storm is Passing Over.” Check it out on YouTube!

The C’Ville Songsters is a small, auditioned, a cappella group of choir members who sing at Choir concerts and represent the Choir year-round, including times when the Choir isn’t rehearsing. See About the Songsters for more information. Note: the Songsters are currently on hiatus due to the pandemic.
The Choir (with the Songsters) performs three concerts each year. We perform a Holiday Concert in December in conjunction with the Clintonville Community Band, a Spring Concert in April at Calvary Bible Church, and a Summer Concert in August at the Park of Roses as part of the Civitan Club of North Columbus Summer Concert Series. The Choir rehearses for about ten weeks before each performance. Rehearsals are Monday evenings from 7:30 – 9:00 PM – see Rehearsal Schedule for details.
