Did you ever wonder what happens when you bring together singers of all ages to sing their hearts out? I discovered the answer to that question: Magic!
As we posted two weeks ago, five area high schools, along with local barbershop quartets, the Gold Standard Chorus of Santa Cruz, and an International Youth Champion barbershop quartet, would come together for the annual choir festival, Sing For Your Life. I was there to cover it from start to finish for Bay Area Non-Profit News, and I was not disappointed. See for yourself!
