Join Us!

Interested in singing with us? Tapestry Singers is a wonderful mix of professional, highly skilled amateur, and aspiring singers. All voices are welcome. To arrange an informal audition please contact us today.  

Along with the fun of learning new and challenging music together, our members know that we are singing and raising money to benefit deserving students, helping them to further their career in music. The simple process to join includes an informal audition with our Music Director to check voice range and music-reading skills. Our singers have a variety of backgrounds in musical training. We commit to practicing outside the weekly rehearsals to learn our music.
