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.
Here is a YouTube video of the choir singing “Let it Snow / Winter Wonderland” at a recent Holiday Concert.
