Stop singing in the show – come out

Sooke Community Choir wants you!

The Sooke Community Choir wants you!

The Sooke Community Choir is gearing up for the start of our 2011 fall session, under the exciting directorship of Sarah Wilson, and new accompanist, Katherine Russell.

Our fall session begins on Wednesday, Sept. 7, at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 1962 Murray Road.  Registration begins at 6:30, followed by a rehearsal to introduce some of the music chosen for this season.

We always look forward to welcoming new voices to the choir.  For new members to our community, our Wednesday rehearsals are a great opportunity to make new friends.  We are a non-audition choir, and you do not have to read music to sing with us.  We learn and improve our singing skills as we practise a wide variety of songs under Sarah Wilson’s direction and guidance.  Sarah integrates information and instruction to help those of us with no formal music training in our rehearsals.  There are also music tracks of the selections available on a special website and on CDs to help members practice at home.

As anyone who sings in the shower, or whistles in the garden knows, music can elevate your mood, and make you feel happy.  Being a member of a choir not only gives us a chance to ‘open our throats, and sing, and sing, and sing’, but our performances are an opportunity to entertain our relations, friends and neighbours, bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds.

Music graces our community inside and out.  The Sooke Community Choir is proud to be a longstanding member of Sooke’s vibrant music scene, and brings its spirit and love of song to a variety of events throughout the year.  Whether it be solemn moments to honour Canada’s heroes in November, sacred and fun carols at Christmas, the joy of listening to and singing with Sooke’s young students at our March Spring Sing-Out, or celebrating the season with our April Spring Concert, the choir’s music marks our community calendar.

Please join us, the Sooke Community Choir, at our first practice on September 7 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.

For more information: call Gail at 250-642-2773, or Laura at 250-642 4282.  You can also check out our website, www.sookecommunitychoir.com.
