The choir provides a good social environment. During rehearsal break we have time for a friendly chat and even cake. After rehearsal, several of us like to gather at a local waterhole for an even more giving chat.
Many friendships are made in the choir and continue beyond. Some have even married. Others travel halfway around the world together.
About every other year, the choir travels abroad, which is rewarding both musically and socially. Recent destinations include Caen, France (2013), Gotland, Sweden (2014), Kärrbackstrand, Sweden (2016), Vilnius, Lithuania (2017) and Brussels, Belgium (2018).
The choir holds an annual party in November with an anniversary celebration every 5th year. We celebrate ourselves properly.
