Come unleash your inner rock star! At DPL's Public (ROCK) Choir, led by Sing Bend, you can be part of a group singing experience unlike any other in Central Oregon. Belt out rock and pop favorites, without feeling self-conscious or worried about who can hear you and who's watching. It's not about being a great singer, it's about joining our collective voices and singing our faces off because it's good for you and it feels good, too. Free; food and beverages available for purchase.
