Berks Choir Games is a community engagement event hosted by reading Choral Society that is aimed to celebrate the diversity of the choral arts in and around Berks County as well as to build bridges with our music loving community who is not necessarily connected to our regular RCS concerts. It is a fun and upbeat night of a cappella music in a relaxed setting.
