About Desert Cities Chorus
Our Chorus is a membership organization of female singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have 15 singers of all ages, all walks of life, and from all parts of Coachella Valley.
The main purpose of Our Chorus is to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at an annual competition. We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out our Hire Us section.
In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of acapella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. Severl times a year, we will get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, to improve our vocal production.
In the spring of every year, Our Chorus participates in the Region21 chorus competition inPasacena California. Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other, and get some constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected each year. In 2011, International Competition will be held in Houston, Texas.. Click here to learn more.
