The Chorus of Westerly announces a special virtual festival at The Chorus of Westerly, Twelve Days of Twelfth Night - a celebration with a new virtual item/release each day (with a Twelfth Night twist) on our social media pages between Dec 30 and Jan 10.
We are grateful to the State of Rhode Island and
Rhode Island Commerce for its recent ESR HArT Grant Award to the Chorus of Westerly which is allowing this virtual festival to be possible. This grant through the HArT program also made possible our recent Christmas Pops release possible. We are also grateful to the
