Singcognito is a community a cappella choir who are now celebrating their 21st year singing together. Their current leader, Elaine Yates, shares her joy of four-part harmony singing with the group and they have fun singing a wide variety of music, including African, spiritual, folk, madrigals, and popular songs from over the decades. Singcognito enjoy sharing their passion for singing with audiences young and old, but particularly like to bring joy to nursing home residents, for whom music is a strong connection to past memories.
