The Chinook Winds Show Chorus is an award-winning group of singers from all walks of life that have one thing in common - we LOVE to SING!! We are comprised of members of various ages and experiences. We all work together to achieve a common goal of making the best, most joyful sound possible! None of us are vocal professionals, and we are proud to support any newcomers in their pursuit of this great hobby of ours! We have members that have been with us for many years, ranging from 40-80+ years of age.
Our music is written in both the G clef and the F clef with the F clef being sung an octave higher than written. Our music is available for those who do not read music using professionally made sound tracks.
Today the Chinook Winds Show Chorus is "Singing in the Key of Joy"!
