Newport Navy Choristers


Our thanks to the Naval Academy Preparatory School, Naval Station Newport for support and providing rehearsal and storage space.

The Choristers thank the Naval War College for their long time support.

The Choristers are honored to have participated in the College's dedication ceremony for a memorial to staff and students who died in the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01 as well as the annual remembrance ceremonies since then.

Founded in 1904, the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society is a private non-profit charitable organization, sponsored by the Department of the Navy.  The mission of the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society is to provide, in partnership with the Navy and Marine Corps, financial, educational, and other assistance to members of the Naval Services of the United States, eligible family members, and survivors when in need; and to receive and manage funds to administer these programs.  Since 1978, the Choristers have made a donation from the proceeds of our March "Music for a Sunday Afternoon" performance to NMCRS.

The Fort Adams Trust, a nonprofit organization, was formed in 1994 to work with the State of Rhode Island to open the Fort for public tours, prepare educational exhibits on the history of the Fort and its times, and raise monies for the restoration of what is the finest example of its type in North America.  The Fort is now open seven days a week May through October, and major improvements have been completed. Interpretive signs on the parade field and in the outerworks address the history of the Fort and those who built it.  Click here to go to the Fort Adams website.  The Trust sponsored the Choristers for our 2006 Aquidneck Island "Christmas in Song" performance.
The Middletown Senior Center sponsored our 2004 "Proudly We Sing" performance.  The Center provides Middletown residents 55 and older with a wide variety of programs and activities.  Click on the sign at left to go to their web site for more information.
