About the Six Degree Singers
Six Degree Singers is a vibrant community choir of 35 young adult performers dedicated to making quality music and bringing it to the Washington area through performances, volunteer work and musical education. Six Degree Singers has featured in events all around the DC metro area, including the Silver Spring Loy Krathong Thai Festival and the Chesapeake-Potomac Invitational Bonspiel, an annual curling event, and was recently selected to perform in the closing concert of the Kennedy Center's National Choral Festival in 2014. As a registered non-profit organization, Six Degree Singers also participates in outreach activities at various charity events and retirement communities.
Our central mission of building musical appreciation and awareness guides every undertaking. The music we perform and teach is a varied repertoire of genres and time periods including contemporary, renaissance, world, folk, and jazz. We are also committed to giving new and local composers an opportunity to showcase their original works by both performing their works and commissioning original material.
As Six Degree Singers has grown, it has taken on even more ambitious projects including its first CD recording, a joint concert with the Penn State Glee club and, of course, more performances. As young and ambitious as its members, SDS is a newcomer with a strong future ahead.
