The Sounds of Joy came together in 1993 as a Wednesday night "sing-along" group of about 10 people, and now boasts over 45 members. On average Sounds of Joy perform more than 30 times a year. They are available for public gatherings of any sort, meetings, conferences, conventions, parties, picnics, banquets, open houses, block parties, charitable or fund-raising events, retirement and rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, and various special events. Some of their song selection themes include Classic Pop, Patriotic, Folk, Civil War, Broadway, and Inspirational music. If it's beautiful, nostalgic, funky, or can be hummed, they will sing it. Although they are not a "religious" group per say, they have always listened for the guidance of Spirit, and have been willing to say "Yes" to whatever new opportunities come their way. Their mission has always been to bring joy to those for whom they perform.
