The Valley Voices Community Choir was formed in 2000 and is dedicated to providing good music to the Flathead Valley. We love to sing and we welcome singers at all levels of musical talent and expertise. We have two independent seasons each year that finish with concerts at Christmas and in May. In addition to our concerts we also perform at nursing homes and assisted living facilities and community events for fun. The Valley Voices Community Choir is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization and is governed by a Board of Directors.
