Clearwater, FL - On the 29th of December the Church of Scientology Choir gathered to celebrate their banner year of outreach, inspiration and revisited their heritage and beginnings as a choir at the Church of Scientology Information Center in Downtown Clearwater.

The Church of Scientology Choir, re-formed in 2011, have increased their outreach in the community bringing a message of equality, freedom, human rights, and the value of man," said Linda Ferguson the Church of Scientology Choir Executive Director.
In 2016, the choir grew from thirteen members to over twenty; practiced 1,600 combined hours and delivered 18 performances to over 1,000 guests, surpassing all previous records.
The celebration acknowledged the members of the choir for their dedication and performances. As part of the event they listened to stories of the some of earliest Scientology choirs which started in 1967 in England. Other choirs followed in Hamburg Germany and in the early 90's here in Clearwater, Florida.
Last year the choir performed at the International Day of Peace, Clearwater Interfaith Coalition at the Historic Fort Harrison; the Citizens Commission on Human Rights Awards banquet; Holiday Winter Wonderland performance in Victorian Era Costumes and in a Holiday "Flash Mob" performance down Cleveland street taking the neighborhood by surprise.
