Upcoming Concerts and Auditions

As with any non-profit arts organization, the revenue generated from the
sale of tickets to performances only covers a fraction of the costs of
producing our events and the costs of keeping our organization running
throughout the year. The proceeds from the Silent Auction will not only support
the Congressional Chorus, but will also support our two very large education
and community engagement programs, American Youth Chorus,
and the NorthEast Senior Singers.

Reserve Tables by Contacting: 202.656.1047, or Admin@CongressionalChorus.org!

Join us on a wild musical ride across America's highways and byways in a
high-energy production that celebrates the diversity of popular music from
various locales around the nation, from the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville to
the Chicago blues of the "Windy City," from the protest music & psychedelic
rock of Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco to the great Broadway houses of
New York, and from the "Streets of Laredo" on the Texas/Mexico border
to the streets of John Waters' Baltimore! 

Don’t miss this song and dance extravaganza that
SELLS OUT in advance every year!

Harlie Sponaugle, Executive Director 

Some of you may remember Harlie, the Founding Executive Director of the Congressional Chorus almost 30 years ago. Last summer, we had the happy circumstance of engaging with her, which quickly led to this impassioned transition that we are excited to announce!
