The singers, now in their 21st year and directed by Chuck Taft for their entire history, are dedicated to fostering community connections, and often bring musical uplift to veterans events and area retirement communities. With Thanksgiving and the December holidays approaching, the Reuter Center Singers now provide a trio of public performances, all accompanied by pianist Nora Vetro.
