Under the creative direction of Denis Donnelly, Wavelengths Community Choir is a diverse group of talented singers who share not only songs by legends like Bob Dylan or John Lennon, but choral music from Africa, Ancient Persia, the Applachians, Ireland and Italy. Some members of the group have extensive music backgrounds; others are new to it. But all participants share a keen enthusiasm in sharing the joy of singing in harmony.
