The Blue Ridge Singers

The Blue Ridge Singers make their annual appearance on our series to present a concert of choral music. This dedicated group of musicians explores an array of musical styles to create a truly comprehensive choral experience. The choir was established in the fall of 2009 in Front Royal, Virginia by singers looking to explore a new avenue in choral singing in their community.
All events are free, with a free-will offering taken at the door.
Proceeds will go to support future programming for this annual series.
