Last seasons highlights included a sold out Christmas performance at the Jack Singer Concert Hall, and another sold out show of "Sing! Top 40 and more..."
It is New West Symphony and Chorus’ vision to “bless people of all ages, leading them to experience love through music, community, and compassionate giving.” As a registered charity, they support and partner with both local and global organizations who seek to make a difference and support vulnerable people. In the 2018/2019 season, they are partnering with organizations working to alleviate the hunger needs in our city and in the world.

Named after Mr. Jack Singer ($1.5M contribution from his sons, Alan and Stephen Singer), the concert hall is also the home of the Carthy Organ donated by the Carthy Foundation in the amount of $750,000 in memory of Mrs. Margaret Mannix. Suspended high above the stage is a laminated, 185,000-pound (90-ton) spruce-wood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.
Over its 32 year life, Jack Singer Concert Hall has undergone many upgrades to ensure that it remains a state-of-the-art performance hall, including a new million dollar sound system with state-of-the-art hearing assistance in 2004, a complete replacement of all its analog sound boards in 2014, and the full replacement of all of its seats, in 2017.
