Did you get to hear and enjoy any of the amazing groups that performed in town during the 2012 World Choir Games? Well, now you have the opportunity to hear more great singing, as choirs from ten local corporations, and one wild card team, compete in CincySings, an ArtsWave event.
As part of the final push of this year’s ArtsWave campaign, the inaugural CincySings event will happen on April 9 at the Aronoff Center.
