Chorus Niagara holds the 12th annual Singathon to raise a minimum of $55,000.00 to support the organization’s season at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre in downtown St.Catharines. Funds are also used to enhance youth initiatives including the Robert Cooper
Choral Scholars Program, The Side-by-side High School Chorale, and the Chorus Niagara Children’s Choir.
The public is invited to attend this free 5-hour choral marathon. The choir sings a variety of selections from its repertoire with guest conductors from the community.
