The Massed Chorus for a Big Sing is huge and the sound is incredible. This picture is from the Big Sing held in Eau Claire, Wis., in 2008. The Staples Area Men's Chorus will host the event at 7:30 p.m. on April 17 in the Staples Motley High School Auditorium.

As the concert officially begins, a tremendous sound fills the room.
