A wide range of sacred and secular music by:
-The Federated Church Choir
-The Social Band – classical and folk traditions

Social Band, Burlington’s lively band of singers, creates thematic programs that weave together song and poetry, striking a balance between thoughtfulness and joviality seldom found in choral groups.  For more information visit their website  The Social Band.
