Singers sought for Sooke Philharmonic Chorus

Chorus to perform in two concerts this season

If you enjoy music and singing in harmony with others, the Sooke Philharmonic Chorus would like to hear from you.

Male and female voices are needed in four sections: soprano, alto, tenor and bass.

There are no formal auditions. The ability to read musical scores is an advantage but not necessary. This is an adult chorus.

Practice begins in early September and continues every Saturday morning, usually 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., in Sooke or Colwood. As concert dates approach, additional rehearsals will be scheduled.

Chorus director Nicholas Fairbank has planned two concerts for the chorus this season: A Continental Christmas, Dec. 2 and 3 and A Royal Feast, April 7 and 8. Both include classic choral works.

Fairbank is well-known in the area as a orchestral conductor and choral director and is a faculty member of the Victoria Conservatory of Music.

The Sooke Philharmonic Chorus, founded over 17 years ago, performs with the Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra’s Chamber Players.

If you are interested in taking the stage this season with the chorus and the Sooke Philharmonic Chamber Players, please contact Lynda Rose 250-642-3536.
