Tree Festival

In what is becoming a Derbytown Chorus tradition, we began our Holiday Season by singing at the John S. Knight Center as part of the annual Christmas Tree Festival.


Novice Quartet Contest

After a little work on some of our Christmas repertoire, we held our Chapter novice quartet contest. As always, this was a fun activity and gave singers a chance to enjoy the quartet experience, whether for the first time or the umpty-millionth time.

Recent Guests
Our President, Jim Bishop, recently entertained three business associates at one of our rehearsals. Pictured with Jim, from left to right are: Maksim Marholin (Goodyear), Sandy Schottenheimer (Goodyear) and George Schottenheimer (Bridgestone). Maksim was visiting from Belarus and he must have enjoyed our singing because he came back to more than one additional rehearsal.

From Ireland

From Scotland
