From the moment of its debut in April 2015, Sing That Thing! has been about building a community through music and showcasing the diversity, commitment and pure joy of New England’s talented choruses. As the series concludes on a high note with its fifth season, we offer our deepest gratitude to everyone who has been part of the Sing That Thing! experience.
More than 2,100 singers have celebrated their music with us and learned important ways to improve their technique and on-air performances from our expert coaches. These are the singers who usually perform in schools, churches, and civic events: unsung heroes who often bring live music pro bono to new audiences. Each one of these extraordinary performers brought their best and shared their love of music with audiences across New England.
From our production team, volunteers, sponsors and partner broadcast stations across New England to the enthusiastic viewers who came to the WGBH studios or tuned in year after year -- thank you for creating this celebration of singing with us – it’s been a grand five years!
Co-executive Producers and Creators -- Liz Cheng and Patricia Alvarado Núñez
Coaches -- Jared Bowen, Annette Philip and Anthony Trecek-King
