The Anything Goes Chorus is a mixed community chorus started in 1980 by jazz vocalist and director Ellen Robinson. The repertoire covers a variety of styles: jazz, popular, show tunes, a cappella, world music and oldies. Annual spring concerts combine both San Francisco and Oakland choruses to create a 50 member chorus with a performance at a major venue in the Bay Area. Their performances create a beautiful, moving and fun program that always has a few surprises with a sprinkling of choreography and props. In addition, the chorus performs at Bay Area assisted living facilities sharing the joy of singing with those who can't get out to hear music.
