Announcement regarding the DCCC summer rehearsals and concert in light of the COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus pandemic:

After much thought, consulting with the staff, and listening to the recommendations of the scientific and professional-healthcare experts about the summer months, I've decided to cancel the DCCC summer concert. 

Better to be safe than sorry.

Please use this time to enjoy your family and maybe take in a choral performance or musical production online.

We'll aim to reconvene in the fall, if possible, for the Christmas concert.

Watch for updates and other announcements here, on our webpage, or on DCCC's Facebook.

Announcement regarding the DCCC summer rehearsals and concert in light of the COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus pandemic:

"Things are up in the air regarding our summer concert. I'm not writing it off yet, but we won't start rehearsals until we know it's wise, recommended, and safe. If we have the concert, it'll have to be later than usual in the summer, but I can't make any predictions or promises at this point. Watch the Facebook page, this DCCC webpage, and the Daily News, and we'll keep you posted with detailed information as the situation unfolds. Meanwhile, take care of yourselves and stay healthy."

2019 Holy Week Concert-Service

Crystal Hogan: "Under normal circumstances we would have been at St. Maryís in Norway performing our Holy Week Concert tonight. We felt it was important to somehow acknowledge this day and provide some solace for the emptiness we are feeling. We came across the recording of the whole service from last year and decided to play it in its entirety for you to enjoy and sing along if you like. It wonít be the same as being together, but we can be together in spirit. Blessings to all during this reflective Holy Week."
