Choir seeks new members

Sooke Community Choir raises their voices in song each week

Members of the Sooke Community Choir Sally Titchkosky

Do you like to sing? Did you know that the more you sing, the better you sound? Did you know that singing is good for your health?

The Sooke Community Choir is starting its Spring Season on Wednesday, January 7th at 7pm at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church on Murray Road. We are always looking for new singers, and would love to include you in our group. As with most choirs, ours is in particular need of male voices. You can come to the first session for free and see if you like it! Please arrive 15 minutes early for the first session to get your music.

Along with Bruce Ruddell, our outstanding conductor, we welcome Kathy Russell as our accompanist. Kathy is an accomplished music teacher, concert pianist and experienced accompanist.

Maywell Wickheim’s stories from his newly released book, “Bites, Bulls and Bullets”, expounds on the historical Sooke spirit of wild adventures, resourcefulness, and humor. It was in keeping with the Community Choir’s theme of Sooke’s past.

The Spring Concert promises to be unique and will certainly captivate the audience with a varied program of pop tunes, gospel and Celtic music. We look forward to a challenging and exciting New Year.

For more information please go to our website: sookecommunitychoir.com or phone Sally at 250 642-3566.
