The Bellflower Civic Chorus is a mixed voice chorus of singers and music lovers. We currently sing American Standards, Broadway Show Tunes, and Classical Rock/Pop songs from the 1960's to present day. Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings, 6:00 - 8:00 PM at Simms Park in Bellflower. We do three two-day concerts annually in May, September and December at the William and Jane Bristol Civic Auditorium in Bellflower. Anyone who enjoys singing and can make the weekly practices is invited to join us. We were shut down during 2020-2021 and conducted three concerts in 2022.
