Newport Navy Choristers Fiftieth Anniversary

On May 16th and 17th, 2003 the Choristers celebrated fifty years of service to the community and having fun singing.  If you have pictures from the concert or dinner party that you would like to have posted on the website, please contact the Web Site Manager (see the Contact Information page).


We are still seeking to locate former choristers.  We know that there have been no less than 1971 Choristers - and we have only located 315 so far. If you are, or know, a former Chorister, please let us know!
