Introducing: Crescent Men’s Choir

You asked, we listened. We are excited to introduce our newest ensemble, Crescent Men’s Choir: an adult community choir under the direction of Andrew Bortz and Samara Ripley. Musicians of all ages and levels are welcome. Previous choral experience isn’t necessary – just a love for making music and an open mind.

Weekly rehearsals encompass building healthy vocal technique, learning and developing musicianship skills, creating ensemble & teamwork, learning fun repertoire for lower voices, and preparing for performances.

Community is at the very core of all of our choirs. Crescent Men’s Choir will be a place to develop connection and meet new people through sharing in music-making, social events, and collaborating with Crescent Women’s Choir.


7:30 – 9:00 pm
St. John’s Presbyterian Church
