The Hampton Choraliers is a community chorus of retirees in Auburndale, Florida. The group was founded 15 years ago with a dozen seniors gathering to sing a few hymns and folk songs. It has grown to be a full fledged SATB chorus of 55 dedicated singers. The Choraliers perform both a Christmas concert and a spring show each year to sold out audiences. The Choraliers were recently honored to sing for the closing ceremony of the Polk County Senior Games at the Lakeland Center in Lakeland, Florida. They shamelessly claim to be the best senior community chorus in the state!
The St. John The Evangelist Catholic Church Choir is a group of talented and passionate singers who’s mission is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through prayerful song. Always open to new challenges, the choir has progressively taken on more difficult compositions including works by Mack Wilberg and Randol Alan Bass. In addition to weekly Masses, the choir has performed annual Christmas concerts with a full orchestra to share the joy of the holiday season and raise money for charities in the Panama City area. The St. John choir is extremely honored to be participating in DCINY.
Based in Kelowna, BC, Canada and established in 2010, this auditioned mixed gender choir spans a broad spectrum of ages and careers.
