AMUSE Singers

The AMUSE Singers seriously love to sing, but do not take themselves too seriously! This adult a cappella group performs around the South Bay with repertoire that includes jazz, pop, and Broadway tunes. Music reading is not a prerequisite; it will be incorporated into rehearsals. No auditions required. Rehearsals take place Sunday nights from 6:30-8:00. 

Find "The AMUSE Singers" on Facebook or contact AMUSE for more information.
