West Valley Singers

The West Valley Singers, a 16 – 20 member ensemble, was organized from within the West Valley Chorale in Fall 2016 to provide high-quality performances at venues not large enough to accommodate the 60-70 members of the West Valley Chorale.  West Valley Singers perform primarily in the West Valley for civic groups, churches, RV parks, retirement communities, private parties, etc.  In addition to choral music, members of West Valley Singers also perform instrumental solos and ensembles, plus vocal solos, duets, trios, and quartets.  The West Valley Singers is directed by Dr Ted Faszer, and accompanied by Chorale member Linda Schirk.
