Spring Choir Festival Saturday

1:30-5:30 p.m. at the Comox Pentecostal Church

Choral Valley is celebrating musical learning, sharing, and growth with its second annual Spring Choir Festival on Saturday Mar. 12, from 1:30-5:30 p.m. at the Comox Pentecostal Church.

Six adult community choirs will be performing, including the Comox United Church Choir, the North Island Choral Society, the three Just in Time Choirs, and special out of town guests, the Calgary Multicultural Choir (CMC), directed by Nancy Jackson.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be welcoming the CMC to our event this season,” said Choral Valley director, Wendy Nixon Stothert. “This is a choir that consists of members with an ethnic heritage representing over 26 countries. The choir has been around for over 35 years and has a strong membership of 55 singers. It’s exciting that the festivals are starting to attract choirs from beyond the Island now.”

The format of this non-competitive event is that each choir will sing three songs then receive on-stage feedback from clinician Morna Edmundson.

Edmundson is currently the director of Vancouver’s premiere women’s choir, Elektra. She brings a wealth of experience, wisdom, and warm generosity to her choral teaching. The afternoon will culminate in all six choirs singing a mass piece. Audience members are welcome to attend all or part of this wonderful event. Admission is $10.
