Crescendo! sings a lively mix of pop, standards, Broadway tunes, jazz and more. Some members of this multiage group of 30-plus singers are accomplished musicians; others learn by ear. The one thing we all share is a love of making music together. Director Wendi Olinger leads the group, with accompaniment by Chris Smellow. 

Want to sing with us? Our next 12-week session starts January 30. Crescendo’s concert will be May 8 at Rolling Bay Presbyterian Church, along with several other performances this spring.

Crescendo rehearses 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Mondays at the Ovation! Studio, 600 Ericksen Avenue NE, Suite 103 (on the building’s ground floor). 

The fee is $99. You can pay with a credit card by clicking the “Add to Cart” button at right, or with a check, made payable to Ovation!, at your first rehearsal. Some partial and full tuition scholarships are available, thanks to our generous sponsors.

For everyone’s safety, we require proof of Covid vaccinations to participate. Masks are optional.
