Joy celebrates beauty and goodness, inviting us to dance without demanding or expecting anything. Sometimes joy is quiet and hidden, and sometimes it bursts out in song and movement. It is the feeling of happiness you get when you do something you love, and our choir members love to sing! Join us either in Victoria or Duncan and sit back, relax and enjoy our contagious enjoyment with special guest artist Maureen Washington!
