CCGR collaborates with many local and national organizations. We have performed with the West Michigan Symphony, Embellish Hand Bell Choir, the Hildegarde Singers, and many more!
CCGR performs all kinds of choral music. We are known for premiering new pieces and supporting local composers. We strive to provide the highest quality music for our audiences.
CCGR is comprised of people who love to sing and are looking to raise their voices together. Not only that, but we are sharing our voices throughout West Michigan and making our community a little more musical.
