Anything Goes Chorus

Anything Goes Chorus is a lively and supportive
community chorus for men and women started in 1980
by jazz vocalist and director Ellen Robinson.
The repertoire covers a variety of styles:
jazz, pop, Broadway, R&B and folk tunes.
Beginning Chorus:
Meets in San Francisco and is open
to singers of any level
to enjoy the experience of singing.
Advanced/Intermediate Choruses
Two separate choruses meet in
the East Bay and San Francisco and are open by audition.
These choruses strive for artistic excellence,
encourage the musical development of each member
and provide a joyful and creative musical experience.
The Annual Spring Concert combines both choruses
in a public performance at a major venue.
These choruses also bring 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.”
