San Diego, CA, November 23, 2020 – The San Diego Chorus is pleased to offer new virtual Singing Holiday Grams! Continued social distancing measures have changed the way that many will celebrate this season, but the San Diego Chorus of Sweet Adelines International has created another memorable way to send warm wishes to friends and family near and far.
The San Diego Chorus was recently featured on San Diego CBS News 8 segment, The Zevely Zone, discussing how the pandemic has affected them, their rehearsal and performance schedule, and new opportunities to think about fundraising in creative ways.
"Our Singing Holiday Grams feature three seasonal winter, Christmas and Hanukkah songs performed virtually in four-part, a cappella harmony,” said Kathleen Hansen, Director of the San Diego Chorus. “We’re going above and beyond to keep the music alive during this uncommon time. Singing Grams help by offsetting the revenue we’ve lost from in-person events, fundraisers and performances.”
Senders may choose from three seasonal songs: Jingle Bells, Silent Night or S'vivon. Each Singing Gram includes a personalized message from the sender, making them a unique way to send warm wishes to friends and family.
Order one for $59 or save when you bundle up with three for $149. Corporate Holiday Grams are also available for organizations interested in adding a branded touch and personal greeting to clients and colleagues. Singing Grams are delivered digitally via email. Recipients receive a link to view their Holiday Singing Gram message online. Allow a 5-day turnaround for personalization and be sure to order by December 18th for delivery by the 25th. The San Diego Chorus is a 501(c)(3) organization, which makes Gram orders tax-deductible.
Easy online ordering and safe virtual delivery will add harmony to your holidays! Schedule your Singing Grams today at: SanDiegoChorus.org/holiday-grams.
The San Diego Chorus is already looking ahead to Singing Sweetheart Grams and also plans to release their 2020 holiday show, “Wish You Were Here,” virtually via YouTube and Facebook. The concert will premiere on Saturday, December 19th at 7 p.m. PT with an encore at 2 p.m. PT on Sunday, December 20th. The show will feature a festive collection of new holiday music from their virtual choir, seasonal quartets, favorite performances from holidays past and an online auction.
