Ready to sing
The Bowen Island Community Choir recently delighted audiences with their Christmas concert on Saturday, December 8. Now, after a few weeks off, the choir is getting set to resume their weekly practices at Cates Hill Chapel beginning on Wednesday, January 9, at 7:15 p.m.
The community choir is an open choir, that means that no auditions are required.
If you love to sing, are willing to commit to a weekly practice schedule plus two extra Sunday afternoon practices per session, would like to participate in the annual Kiwanis Choral Music Festival in March and sing a fabulous concert in May, then please come and join us.
The gifted Ellen Macintosh leads the choir and the island’s most popular accompanist Sheilagh Sparks keeps the group in time and in tune every week.
This is a fun, long established group of singers who gather to make a joyful noise. Ellen Macintosh is an excellent teacher and has the patience of an angel. The Community Choir is a place to sing out if you are a seasoned singer, learn about music if you are just beginning and make new Bowen friends.
The cost of the session is $80. This covers the time from January 9 to early May. It is the best musical deal in town. It is also challenging and rewarding. The group is a soprano, alto, tenor, and bass choir and numbers around fifty singers. Traditionally, the smallest groups within the choir are the tenor and bass sections so if you are male and would like to sing, please come out and give it a try. You will be met with enthusiastic and open arms!
The first practice and registration for the Spring session is Wednesday, January 9, at Cates Hill Chapel.
Please come out and join in. All are welcome.
