Our Choruses

Each chorus in Border Lakes Region 2 is more than just an acapella ensemble; it is a family. We love getting together each week and sharing friendships as well as great music.

If you like to sing, you're invited to visit our chapters and discover your INNER DIVA! Sitting in on one of our rehearsals is the perfect way to find out more about us and what we can do for you!

You'll have the opportunity to hear us perform four-part, a cappella harmony, and you'll be invited to join us on the risers to experience the music, friendship and fun for which Border Lakes Region 2 is known!


Women of all ages are invited to attend. For more information, contact the chapter directly or reach our Membership Coordinator, Melissa Wright, if you need additional assistance. If you're a woman who loves to sing, we'd love to meet you!  Our members travel from all over to sing with their chorus. To quote one of our members, "It's the love of singing that brought me to my chorus. It's the enthusiasm, fun and lasting friendships that keep me returning week after week. I love it!"  Come for a visit and find out for yourself!
