Anything Goes Chorus

AGC is a lively and supportive community chorus
for men and women started in 1981
by jazz vocalist and director Ellen Robinson.
The repertoire covers a variety of styles:
jazz, pop, Broadway, R&B and folk tunes.

We are actively looking for new singers
for the Fall 2024 season
.
____________________________

BEGINNING CHORUS CLASS
Meets in San Francisco and is open to all singers
of any level to enjoy the experience of singing with others
and learn how to improve your singing.

INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED CHORUSES
Two separate choruses meet in the East Bay and San Francisco
and membership is by approval of the director. These choruses strive for artistic excellence, encourage the musical development of each member, and provide a joyful and creative musical experience. There are in-house performances each season, as well as bringing choral music to audiences who don’t go out to hear live music
by performing free concerts at retirement communities
and homeless shelters.

Students say…

“It’s fun! Singing in a group can give great pleasure even to someone who has less than a great voice. Harmonizing in song lends harmony to my whole life.”
