New Perspectives, Season 56, 2019–2020
Summer Sings 2019
Fill your Monday nights with music and friends!

Join us this summer for our annual sing-alongs of beloved choral masterworks. You bring the voice; we supply the scores; our accompanists provide the 10-fingered orchestra; and a variety of local conductors stitch it all together.

Admission is $17 for each sing, or you can purchase a Flex Pass that gives six entries for $85. Use it for one entry to each of the six sings, or six entries to one sing, or any mixture. (Students under 25 get free admission with ID.)
