What People Are Saying About Congressional Chorus
"Such a great conglomerate of folks who are all interested in the same thing, and being new to DC, it’s been a place for me to make friends while exploring my passions.” ~ Michael Brewer, tenor, in May 30, 2012 article in Roll Call
"If you stay too long at a Congressional Chorus rehearsal, you risk becoming a hopeless groupie or worse, a wannabe singer (lacking only talent and sight-reading ability). Such is the infectious camaraderie that governs this group. But scratch the surface of this party atmosphere and you find serious, dedicated musicians brought together by their love of singing and their devotion to American music of all types." ~ Hill Rag (February 2012)
"Under the outstanding and exuberant leadership of David Simmons... Congressional Chorus is a treasured part of the cultural life of Washington, DC.” ~ Jane Lang, Founder and Board President of the Atlas Performing Arts Center
