Pop-up choir in downtown Courtenay Wednesday

Singers of all ages and experience levels are invited to participate in the next Pop-Up Choir event on Wednesday, June 19, 7-8 p.m. in the courtyard outside Blue Spruce Ice Cream at 5th & Cliffe in Downtown Courtenay.

Pop-Up Choir is where singers learn one song in one night. No music reading or time commitment beyond this session is necessary.

This time, the song is Never Gonna Let You Down by Colbie Callat, a fun and spirited song with a great message that became the theme song for the American SPCA.

Pop-Up Choir is led by local choral directors, Jenn Forsland and Wendy Nixon Stothert, and is based on the Choir!Choir!Choir! model. It’s been four years, 20 videos, and almost 7,000 YouTube views since this project began.

Bring the kids and come for that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from engaging in a unique and meaningful collaborative, creative, community endeavour. Drop-in for $10.
