About Sing! A Women's Chorus

Founded in 1999 by director Mags David, Sing! A Women’s Chorus is based in the Duluth Public Schools Community Education program. This ensemble is open to all registrants.

We sing traditional music from the U.S., Europe, and West Africa, and original songs written for the chorus by Mags David.
