Simple Gifts Community Choir Looking for a choir that's lots of fun? This is a friendly and inviting community choir for men and women who are new to choirs, or experienced singers who want a choir that is not too demanding of their time and commitments. Singers help one another out, and sometimes practice together. We sing love songs, swing, gospel, and folk songs from around the world. We also stretch our skills with a bit of classical and jazz. We put on two major concerts a year, and each term we perform two outreach concerts at nursing or retirement homes. Sometimes small ensembles are formed by singers who want an extra challenge and an opportunity to "strut their stuff". Practice recordings are provided. If you've never sung in a choir, you are most welcome. You just have to be able to sing in tune. If tuning is an issue or if you're not sure, I'm happy to give you a complementary vocal assessment to see if it's a fit for you. Singers – We’re looking forward to seeing you in September. Here's a good article about why singing in a choir is so good: https://www.cbc.ca/radio/blogs/the-science-behind-why-choir-singing-is-good-for-you-1.4594292 SIMPLE GIFTS COMMUNITY CHOIR a welcoming choir for both new and experienced singers.
