About Sing to Live®

The Sing to Live® Community Chorus was created by Chicagoan Melinda Pollack-Harris in 2005 to bring the joy of singing and fellowship to those whose lives have been touched by breast cancer.

It began with a quest. Following her treatment for the illness, Pollack-Harris sought a support group that not only shared her journey, but also could bring her the sense of camaraderie, exuberance, and self-confidence she had found as a singer in several choruses. Unable to find a musical outlet, she started her own.

She incorporated Sing to Live® as a nonprofit and brought on board Dr. Wilbert Watkins, a renowned musical director and conductor whose twin sister is a breast cancer survivor. Together, they embarked on a mission to find singers -- both men and women -- who were breast cancer survivors or had relatives or friends with the disease.

Now in its nineth season, the Sing to Live® Community Chorus has grown to 90 members who year-round enjoy friendship, harmony, and support in weekly rehearsals (the chorus takes the summer off) and perform concerts two times a year in Chicago's metro-area. Pollack-Harris' instinct has proved true: The shared and unique experience of breast cancer, combined with the therapeutic power of music, has created for singers a strong sense of family and renewed spirit, which is apparent and appreciated by enthusiastic audiences.

To further celebrate it's message of support, fellowship, and pride, Sing to Live® offers breast cancer survivors complimentary concert tickets. And, to fully realize Pollack-Harris' dream, the chorus continues to grow and welcome singers, both men and women, who are in tune with its inspirational mission.
