A festival of choirs

Choral Valley’s second annual Fall Choral Festival all day Saturday

Do you love to listen to many voices joined together in harmony?

On Saturday, Nov. 21 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., choral enthusiasts are invited to come and listen to 11 choirs perform at the Comox Pentecostal Church, 1919 Guthrie Rd.

Janet Warren, recipient of the BC Music Educator’s Professional Music Educator Award, will be facilitating the learning, sharing, and musical growth for over 300 singers.

Local choirs are participating as well as choirs from Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo and Powell River. Different types of choirs, from jazz choirs to chamber ensembles are gathering for the non-competitive choral event.

Admission is $5-$10 at the door and audience members are invited to stay for as long as they like.

Choral Valley is a year-old local initiative offering choral retreats, festivals and workshops for choirs and singers.

“Our community is so rich in culture and compelling scenery,” says Wendy Nixon Stothert, Choral Valley’s director. “I’m thrilled to welcome choirs from near and far to join us here for choral development opportunities. There are hundreds of choirs in Alberta that can come here easily on short, direct, affordable flights.”

Retreat activities can include workshops, exploring downtown and local nature attractions, a choral sharing session with a local choir, a performance, and team-building activities.
