The Gentlemen Songsters began in 1932 as the Chevrolet Glee Club of Detroit. It was founded by Dave Redwood a general foreman at the Chevrolet-Detroit Forge Plant who thought that men needed to do something more than work all day.
The Songsters welcome back Peggy Barry Bartz as our director. We look forward to her enthusiasm and ingenuity as we move forward.
