Welcome to Ancora's 20th Anniversary Season!

We have a story to tell...

One evening in May 2004, a handful of Seattle Girls’ Choir alumnae gathered at Wallingford Presbyterian Church. Their purpose: to rekindle the camaraderie and pure joy of singing exquisite music for women’s voices they had experienced as choristers in the Seattle Girls’ Choir.

As rehearsals continued, various members took the helm directing old songs for which they still had their music. In August 2004, they formed a three-member Board of Directors; in October, an artistic director was hired; and in 2005, section 501(c)3 nonprofit status was granted by the IRS. Ancora Women’s Choir was officially born!

Looking back over all the wonderful music we have shared over the years, we are immensely grateful for all of our wonderful singers and loyal supporters, without whom our story would not have grown and flourished. We are proud to announce our 20th  Anniversary Season next year and invite you to join to join us for a year of spectacular music for our community.
