September is Open Choir Month
About Us:The Ambler Station Singers were founded in July 2018 as a choral ensemble to provide excellent musical entertainment in the Ambler Pennsylvania area as well as surrounding communities. Our goal is to be an entertaining and excellent choir featuring the music of Stage and Screen, ageless popular tunes, and a few more “serious” pieces as well. We break our year up into two seasons, firstly, we produce and perform a Holiday Show which features both religious and secular classics designed to put everyone in the spirit of the season. Our yearly spring show is designed to be fun and entertaining, usually following a theme, with a nice mix of joyful music and deeper substance.

We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) and we are gearing up for our second season! This season's theme will be:
A Few Words From Our President, Sharon Rogers-Barron
We are so very thankful that our director, Lisa VanHeldorf closed one door and opened another when forming Ambler Station Singers. We are truly blessed to have a director with her skill and passion for music and the voice as instrument. We are especially thankful that her passion is contagious!
As a new choir we are dependent upon each other to share that energy, to uplift our group with the love of choral singing, and for taking that love and energy into our communities. We cannot be shy or reserved; we must be willing to step outside our own comfort zone in spreading the word. That word is one of joy, and of good health.
In today’s hectic and too often angry world, we’re all looking for ways to relax and unwind. Recent health studies show that singing releases endorphins (the feel-good chemical in our brains) and lowers blood pressure. It is shown to uplift the spirit and make you happy. Singing helps to develop better lung strength and posture and develop core muscle strength. It helps to strengthen memory and cognitive skills. But perhaps most important, whether participating or listening, choral singing brings people of all ages, ethnicity, sex, religion, talent levels, and backgrounds together as one - one in the love for and the joy of singing.
If you’re a member, share your joy with each other, with your family, with your church or synagogue, your school, your friends, the people you work with, and the businesses you frequent. If not a member, we invite you to join us in experiencing the joy; become a new member, a supporter, or attend our shows. Ambler Station Singers will open doors - to spread the joy and good health.
