RICHARDSON – The Rich-Tones Chorus, a group made up of more than 100 talented women are getting ready to step on stage in Hawaii to help commemorate the Pearl Harbor 80th anniversary.

“We’re so excited for the opportunity to get to go share what we do and it’s such an awesome and solemn occasion. It’s not really a celebration, but a remembrance of service men who sacrificed their lives and we are grateful,” said Rich-Tones member, Connie Light.

The group was recently invited by the mayor of Honolulu to perform as part of a series of events today. They will join other bands and choirs from across America and led by the Marine Forces Pacific Band in saluting veterans, active service members and their families.

“We are based in Richardson and we are very proud of our roots in Richardson, and we are really excited to represent Richardson in this event,” said Peggy Blake, Rich-Tone member.

The Rich-Tones Chorus is funded in part by the Cultural Arts Commission. Visit for more information.
