Veterans Chorus

The Saratoga Veterans Chorus will hold an open house from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 10, at the American Legion Post 70, 34 West Ave., Saratoga Springs.

Veterans, active-duty, Guard and Reserve service members and their families can learn more about the chorus and its activities. Strawberry shortcake will be served.

The chorus was founded in 2018. The chorus seeks to introduce male and female veterans of America’s Armed Forces to the joy of a cappella singing in a relaxed environment. While the chorus does schedule limited public appearances, no participant is ever required to sing publicly.

Penny Schiek, a retired music educator and choral director, is the chorus’ instructor.

In-person rehearsals resume Mondays at 7 p.m. July 19 at the Post 70 building. For more information, contact Amy Hughes at (518) 884-4999.
