Welcome to our website.  My name is Thomas Henniger and I am the current President of the Board of Directors for the chorus.  During this last spring semester, we embarked on a journey to identify a new Music Director to take the place of Gerome Bell, who stepped down in June after 20 faithful years.  Please join us in welcoming Interim Director Brian Bloye.

As you can see from his biography below, Brian brings a number of exciting skills and a passion for the group.  Please get involved and either audition as a singer or attend our programs as we move forward with them!  Watch this site for the new and interesting events to come.  The Community Renewal Chorus is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting and celebrating diversity, equality, peace and justice through music.

As one of the few community musical groups in the United States whose diversity truly reflects the face of urban America,  the Chorus has been welcomed enthusiastically in many foreign countries. Since 1976, seven international “Friendship Tours” have been taken to Romania, Poland, the former USSR, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Scandinavia, China, Japan, Hong Kong, Costa Rica,  and Mexico.

We encourage all interested singers to audition with us.  Please fill out the contact form below.
