This adult choir has gained a reputation for singing beautifully blended harmonies, performing a joyful selection of sacred and secular pieces, and continually striving to improve technique. With a spiritual and gospel foundation, the choir celebrates a love of music and each rehearsal is a testament to this love affair.

The Celebration Singers welcome new members to the choir, especially those who sing tenor or bass. The ability to read music is an asset, and a good ear is a must.

The choir invites all new and previous members to the Sept. 12 first practice of the season, 7:30 p.m. at Mark Isfeld Secondary School on Lerwick Road.

Under the ever-playful accompaniment of Sean Mooney, and Forlsand’s nurturing perfectionism, Celebration Singers is looking forward to another year of great music.

Two concerts a year, one at Christmas and a spring finale, allow the choir to share its music with friends and family and perform, often with other musicians and singers.

If interested in joining, come to the first rehearsal Sept, 12 and try us out for a few weeks. For more information, contact Nancy Young at warbler2@shaw.ca 250-334-3409.
