The Roxborough Male Chorus began in 1923. Its first director, W.C. Ames, and its first accompanist, William E. Tippet, created the singing group for men who loved music and resided in and around the neighborhood. Prospective members are welcome to bring a friend! Enjoy the camaraderie and share in the music!
