The Chattanooga Boys Choir is Social Distance-SING until further notice.
As of Monday, March 16, 2020, all activities, including in-person rehearsals, performances, and Open Houses are suspended until further notice. It is the hope that the semester will continue at a later date with some modifications and changes to performance dates.
The fun doesn't stop for CBC choristers, though! Repertoire rehearsal aids, the revised CBC Musicianship Curriculum, scheduled chats with a dozen composers, Karaoke challenges, AND MORE await our singers as we "keep the music going" until we can be back together making music again. CBC choristers and families should visit the MEMBERS section of the web site to have fun and stay current.
Open Houses for new and prospective members will take place virtually. Sign up for Open Houses here, and you will receive information to attend virtually!
We are grateful for everyone's flexibility and understanding during these uncertain times.
