Do you enjoy singing in four-part harmony? When you go to musical theater performances are you tempted to sing along with the cast?
We are an amateur chorus of men and women singing a mixed repertoire of classical and popular tunes. We welcome singers who can carry a tune and love to perform.
The Old Mill Singers was founded in 1970 as the Phelps Arts Society to provide music for hospital patients during the holiday season, and, over forty years later, it continues to perform in nursing homes, at community events, and in public concerts twice a year.
We are recruiting new members for our fall season culminating in a series of holiday concert presentations in Ossining and in New York City. Rehearsals will resume after Labor Day. We meet Tuesdays at 7:30 PM in St. Paul's on the Hill Church, 40 Ganung Drive (off Route 133) in Ossining. Interested in joining us? Call and leave a message at 917-318-8941. Please mention the Old Mill Singers in your message.
