“Great friends! Memorable music! Lasting memories!"

Susan Ford Ricketts


Duet Club – do I have to sing d-u-e-ts??

No! Solos & duets are not required. Neither are auditions!

Ellen Ambrose, our founder, understood timidness. Our history and our present are built on her wisdom. When her students were too shy to perform piano solos, she encouraged their continued studies by suggesting they play Hayden Duets.

With Ellen Ambrose as its first conductor, a women’s chorus formed at the turn of the 20th century. The women of the Duet Club have been singing together ever since – except for a short break in the 60’s and a short break between 2020 and 2022.

In 2017, the chorus was renamed Women of Song. No required solos or duets here!

“The chorus has been fun, challenging, and has given me the opportunity to join with women who love to sing."

Ruby Purdy
