A non-auditioned chorus program for "seniors" who love to sing and perform in our community. Rehearsals are always on Mondays from 1-2pm at Headwaters Music and Arts.

Scientists are learning more and more about the benefits music has on the human mind.  Music awakens dormant memories.  Singing inspires our brains to release endorphins and ultimately stave off negative feelings.   In a nutshell, singing is good for you.

The First City Singers perform the 3rd Monday at Havenwood Care Center; the 3rd Wednesday at Gold Pine Homes; the 3rd Friday at Baker Park; the last Monday of the month at either WindSong or Tamarack Assisted Living; and the 4th Thursday of the month at Neilson Place.

First City Singers is open to snowbirds, summer home folks, and year round Bemidji residents.  We are always looking for new members! Call for more info, 218.444.5606
