The Newport Navy Choristers present



Singing with the Newport Navy Choristers!

Full house and full hearts. Thank you to everyone who came out to St Barnabas Church on Friday night to help the Newport Navy Choristers and the James L Maher Center celebrate our shared 70th birthday at the Choristers’ special benefit concert for the Maher Center! Proudly We Sing: Celebrating 70 Years of Song and Service featured two hours of gorgeous choral performance, including soul-stirring American heritage classics and fan favorites from the 1950s to today. The cherry on top was a super-fun Sweet Caroline/Happy Birthday singalong featuring Maher Center people who raised the festivity level to the rafters ... including two ladies who came directly to the concert (one in her Pink Ladies costume and the other in her skirt!!!) from the Center’s fabulous Sock Hop at Common Fence Point Community Center. Everyone had the most wonderful time, and all proceeds will benefit more memory-making and life-changing activities, programs, and services at the Maher Center. Big hugs to our program sponsors, all our friends who came out to celebrate with us, our Maher Center performers, and of course the talented and generous Newport Navy Choristers. Life to its fullest, indeed!

The Maher Garden Center re-opened on April 1st, 2023
