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, we continue to perform in nursing homes, at community events, and in public concerts twice a year.
We are an adult choral group with a variety of singing skill levels. Many of us do not read music. So if you can carry a tune in a bucket, give us a try.
We are recruiting singers for the fall season. Highlights include our Holiday Concert and a performance at the Metropolitan Life Building just upstairs from Grand Central Terminal.
Rehearsals will resume in September. Love to sing? Call us anytime at (917) 318-8941. Please mention the Old Mill Singers in your message.
Hear Us Sing!
Our next appearance is scheduled for 7 PM on Friday August 21, at Louis Engel Park on the Hudson River just south of the Ossining train station. Our concert is sponsored by the Town of Ossining. Come with a chair, watch the sunset and listen to our musical selections. Admission is free!
