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.
