The Aquidneck Singers is a teen and adult women's chorus founded by Elizabeth Woodhouse in September 2019.
The ensemble meets Tuesday evenings at the Common Fence Point Community Hall (Portsmouth). There is no audition to participate and all are welcome to join us!
The Aquidneck Singers learn and perform a variety of music including music from other cultures and in other languages, in diverse styles and from different time periods. Rehearsals are fun and engaging. Singers will have the opportunity to explore and develop their unique voice as well as learn skills to become more confident musicians. No matter what your previous musical experience and background, the Aquidneck Singers will allow you to grow and have fun doing it!
