The BIG ARTS Community Chorus is currently registering new members.

A non-auditioned choral class, the group is open to singers of all ages and abilities. The only requirements are a commitment to attend weekly rehearsals and to practice the music.

Director Ellen Whitten graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and from Georgia State University with a Master of Music. She has over 30 years of choral experience.
