About this Organization:
The Westboro Community Chorus (WCC) has been in existence since 1971. We are a non-profit group of volunteer singers, men and women, ages 18 and older, from the greater Westboro area. Members are not required to audition or read music. Members are required to memorize notes and words for each show. We sing because we love to sing, and enjoy the light, fun atmosphere that this chorus is all about. We share our music with the community through a spring and a holiday show each year. A portion of the chorus fundraising efforts also goes to providing music scholarships for private lessons to Westboro Junior and Senior High School students. We incorporate sets, costumes, dances, skits, and any other creative modality that is appropriate for the theme of the show.
