In our concerts, we include an audience sing-along participation arrangement in our program.There will be many carols you and your family know very well, and we will invite the audience to participate in the singing!

The Oceanside Community Chorale is one of Long Island's longstanding community singing groups, providing choral performances to the public and also to schools, hospitals and other worthy organizations.
Our members come from in many different Long Island towns and we perform under the auspices of the Oceanside Department of Community Activities, and are grateful for their support over 10-plus years. Our Musical Director, Maureen Smith Setton, President Frank DeFontes and our Music Committee gather resources each season to compose, rehearse and perform with the chorale members in concert .
Performances often include Broadway show music, popular songs, opera, jazz, seasonal holiday songs and even classical and latin rythms!
If you like to sing -- or if you know someone who likes to sing, please pass this message to them, "We welcome experienced and brand-new singers to visit our rehearsals, to meet us, and perhaps join us-- in a wonderful community singing experience in Oceanside!"
