The Sooke Community Choir performed at the museum during the snowman building event in December.

Community choir starts a new season

New members and voices being sought by active community choir

The Sooke Community Choir is having its registration and first practice Wednesday, Jan. 4 at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 1962 Murray Road.  Registration begins at 6:30 p.m., with the rehearsal following.

Under the exciting directorship of Sarah Wilson, and accompanied by our wonderful pianist, Katherine Russell, the choir will be singing some old and new favourites that celebrate the positive influence “GLEE” has had on young and old(er) music lovers alike.

New and former choir members are always welcome: there are no auditions, and while it is helpful to be able to read music, it is not necessary. Music tracks of the selections are available to help us practice at home.  Our director, Sarah, integrates information and instruction during our rehearsals to help those of us with no formal music training.  But most important, members are encouraged to have fun with music.

Music graces our community throughout the seasons.  The Sooke Community Choir is a longstanding member of Sooke’s vibrant music scene, and brings its spirit and love of song to our friends and neighbours throughout the year.  Whether it is the joy of sharing an evening of music with choirs from Sooke’s elementary schools at our March Spring Sing-Out, marking the changing seasons with our Spring Concert, honouring our heroes in November or celebrating the wonder of Christmas, the choir’s music marks the Sooke community calendar.

Please join us, the Sooke Community Choir, at our first practice tonight, Wednesday Jan. 4 to find out more about our program and how you can bring music into your life and share music with our community.  There will be a chance to socialize with friends, old and new, over tea and cookies.
