Sooke Community Choir welcomes new conductor

New conductor will welcome new voices into community choir

New choir conductor Bruce Ruddell.

The Sooke Community Choir is thrilled to announce that we have a new conductor for the spring session. He is the renowned Bruce Ruddell, hailing from Salt Spring Island where he conducted the mixed voice choir successfully for 18 years. The choir, Tuned Air, enjoyed national recognition on CBC on Canada Live. Ruddell is also a professional member of the Canadian League of Composers. We are all looking forward to a fabulous season with Bruce Ruddell. Some words from Ruddell,  “I am very excited about being asked to step into the role of conductor of the Sooke Community Choir for the first session of 2014. The music chosen for the April concert will have great appeal for the singers and the audiences alike. If you are reading this and thinking that you might like to sing, please come out to the first rehearsal in January and try us out. I guarantee you’ll have too much fun! The choir does not audition but instead, it welcomes all who wish to sing.”

We are hoping to attract new members to join us in the New Year. Start your New Year off with an uplifting spirit. We are a warm and welcoming group. We come together simply for the joy of singing and socializing. Even if you think you can’t sing, you’ll be amazed at how soon you will find your voice. Why not join us for a couple of sessions and see how you like it, without any obligation, on January 8, 15 and 22? As with most choirs, we especially need voices in the lower registers.
