WE HAVE A NEW HOME FOR THE CHORUS

Beginning Tuesday, February 10th, the chorus has a new home for our rehearsals at the Universalist National Memorial Church on the northwest corner of 16th and S Sts in Washington DC.  The exact address is: 1810 16th St. NW. It is a beautiful building that is home to several other arts organizations.  The church has a mission of supporting the arts and the Board voted unanimously to have us in residence on Tuesday evenings. Chorus members and newcomers, please enter at the front door on 16th St. We rehearse in the sanctuary on the first floor to the left of the front door. 

The nearest metros within walking distance are:  Dupont Circle Metro (half a mile) or U street Metro (. 6 miles - walk down U St to 16th and then down to the corner of S St.  We will explore bus routes for 16th St as well.  For those driving, you can find street parking for now.  We will be talking soon with the Masonic Temple about perhaps using the lot behind their building.  Do not park behind the church in that alley.  Those three spaces are reserved for church staff.

We found our new home by the efforts of our alto, Sophie Silverman!  Thank you so much Sophie. 

We appreciate our tenure at the United Church of Christ at 20th and G Sts for the past seven years. We have outgrown our space there so with this move we begin a new era in the chorus's existence.  We especially thank Kevin Rost at that church for his support during our initial years.

Yard Sale September 13th to support the chorus

Come to the Chorus Yard Sale for fun and profit!! Hang out with chorus friends - bring lemonade or soft drink or two and perhaps a snack.  Water will be available of course.  Wear a hat to keep off the sun.  There is some shade in the front yard. 

Donate items to the Chorus Yard Sale to be held September 13th at 11122 Nicholas Dr., Silver Spring MD 20902.  Sale begins at 8 am and runs until 4 pm.  Please bring items in the morning early and stay to help us sell. 

If you can bring a card table and a chair or two that will help our displays. 

We have a rolling clothes rack so bring clothes on hangers if at all possible.  But we will display shorts, tees, etc on a table.  It will help to put the size on a sticker or a sign on the hanger. Hats will work.  Old shoes need to have the size attached.  They still need to look reasonably good. 

If you bring books, they should be in reasonably good shape.  Very strange items from your shelves just may sell - all of Becky's french novels sold last year for instance. 

Kids and grown-ups love costume jewelry.

Please wash items for display.  If anything is electric, it has to work. 

If anything weighs more than 20 pounds, be prepared to come back and haul it away if it doesn't sell!!

All unsold items will go to Goodwill or the Friends of the Library. 

If any items is questionable, call Caroline to consult - 202-236-3743
