Around the World

Greenwood Singers regrets to announce we are cancelling the production of ‘Around the World’ on April 18, 2020. While it is disappointing not to have the opportunity to perform our planned program of wonderful music from different times, places, and cultures, the health and safety of our members and of our audience members who faithfully support Greenwood Singers is our main concern.
Rest assured Greenwood singers will be back for its 41st season with its annual presentation of ‘The Many Moods of Christmas’ in December 2020!
Thank you for your understanding.
