Past Performances

Once or twice a year, we sponsor a SongShop Live group concert built around a single theme. Each theme, such as Life at Home, Promise Me..., Dream a Little Dream, Flying, The Dr. Ruth Show, ties together our vast repertoire and song genres.

Since 2013, we've also produced Solo Sets featuring a smaller number of singers in concert. The SongShop Salon series brings a select group of performers to private homes for intimate house concerts. We welcome your interest to host a Salon concert.

Singers and pianists who have joined our performances are listed at the Talent Roster.
