VHWC to Sing For Local Venues

Ki Park

Ki Park, the director of Verdugo Hills Women’s Chorus (VHWC), announced the chorus will be performing for local venues after a long COVID hiatus. The chorus, whether masked or not, is eagerly waiting to perform while staying within the confines of each venue. Park is a longtime performer in churches and in community choruses. Performances are scheduled for December in the areas of La Crescenta, Glendale, Pasadena and Montrose. These venues are open and free of charge to the community.

On Wednesday, Dec. 7 at 1:30 p.m., VHWC will sing at Villa Gardens, 842 E. Villa St. in Pasadena. Guests must check in at the desk and wear masks.

On Monday, Dec. 12 at 1:30 p.m. VHWC will entertain at Sparr Heights Senior Living, 2640 Honolulu Ave. in Montrose.

At 2:45 p.m. the chorus will sing for residents and guests at Twelve Oaks Senior Living, 2820 Sycamore Ave. in La Crescenta.

On Monday, Dec. 19 at 2 p.m., VHWC members will sing at Morning Star of Pasadena.  

At 3 p.m. they will entertain at Del Mar Park, 990 E. Del Mar Blvd. in Pasadena.

        VHWC will sing at 2 p.m. at Windsor Manor, 1230 E. Windsor Ave. in Glendale followed by a visit to Scholl Canyon Estates, 1551 Chevy Chase Drive in Glendale at 2:30 p.m. It is advised that guests bring a mask to each performance.

VHWC began over 65 years ago as the Mother Singers and later became a member of the California Women’s Chorus. Inc. (CWC), a non-profit statewide organization. Currently CWC is trying to enhance its membership after losing many members due to not being able to get together and sing. CWC promotes choral music among women and raises funds for scholarships to benefit students pursuing a vocal musical career.

There are no auditions, just a desire to share the love of music and to commit to weekly rehearsals September through June and performances as scheduled.

Any woman who likes to sing, be it in the shower or lulling a child to sleep, is invited to contact Ki Park (818) 720-6465 or Gale Musker at (818) 257-2526 and check out the VHWC.
