Join us for the Fall 2020 CSA Virtual Showcase!

The CSA choirs have worked hard this fall amid extraordinary circumstances, coming together each week to make music safely outdoors under a tent, with masks and physical distancing. Thanks to the excellent ventilation system in Sauder Concert Hall and data-driven safety precautions, the choirs were able to pre-record performances for our online virtual showcase. Join us in celebrating their semester of music-making on Sunday, November 29 at either 4:00 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. The concert will be streamed here.
