Singing at the fund-raiser for labor troubador Anne Feeney
On May 13th, 2011, we joined Pete Seeger, Peter Yarrow, and dozens of others to support this hero's struggles with our insane medical system.
Cultural exchange trip to Cuba
In April, 2011, over 60 chorus members went on an exciting cultural exchange to the beautiful island of Cuba. In seven intense days we performed for groups as diverse as the National Chorus of Cuba, the Chorus of the National Trade Union Federation, and children's choral and theater groups, while listening to and watching their performances as well. We were pleased to be part of the ongoing process of opening up contacts between people there and people here after 50 years of official estrangement. For a taste of our experience, go to the page of assembled photos.
