The Creswell Community Singers are resuming rehearsals effective October 6, 2021. For more details, refer to the Rehearsals section below.

Mission

To provide an opportunity for men and women who want to experience the joy of singing and give mutual support as they engage, enrich, and inspire the community by presenting choral music. 

Activities

We find great joy in learning new songs, singing together and performing within the surrounding communities.

Due to the pandemic and policies of the State of Oregon, all those attending rehearsals will be required to wear a mask.

We have secured Rock Oakeson, as our new accompanist. He is a gifted musician and we are grateful he will be with the Creswell Community Singers.
