The Old Mill Singers was founded in 1970 as the Phelps Arts Society to provide music for hospital patients during the holiday season. 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 love to sing and you can carry a tune in a bucket, give us a try. We are now recruiting new singers for our fall season, which will begin Tuesday, September 11.
Send an e-mail to email@example.com or come to our open rehearsals any Tuesday evening at 7:30 during the month of September. Rehearsals are held at St. Paul's on the Hill, 40 Ganung Dr, Ossining, NY 10562.

His choral setting of poetry by Robert Louis Stevenson, "Under the Night Sky", was awarded a world premiere in 2014 by the Australian Boys Choir in celebration of their 75th anniversary, and was commercially released on their subsequent album "75".
