Join the Syracuse Community Choir this Fall!

The Syracuse Community Choir is a community of people who come together to sing songs of peace and social justice. We educate each other and the Greater Syracuse community about social, political, and environmental issues. We believe that everyone can sing and every voice matters. We’d love for you and your voice to join our choir.

This season, we will focus on the theme “Joy as Resistance”. We rehearse every Wednesday night in preparation for a Winter Solstice Concert on December 16, 2023.

  • No try-outs! All ages and abilities are welcome.
  • Hybrid rehearsals: In-person (masks required) & virtual on Zoom.
  • Sliding scale donations for rehearsals. No one turned away for lack of funds.
  • Transportation and childcare available. (Contact: Shanah 315.880.1796)
  • Inclusive and accessible space. Please let us know when registering if you have questions or require accommodations.
