Ensemble Mambo

CanSing is comprised of various choral groups of varying age groups, all of whom sing separately but also engage in multi-generational music-making.  I could not help but be swept away by the spirit of community.  The joy and sense of belonging in the room was undeniable. I am impressed by the obvious musical strides this organization has made in a few short years… Bravo!!! Dr Jeanette Gallant

Led by Gerda Blok-Wilson and accompanied by Kevin Eng, this is an opportunity for both men and women to rehearse and perform choral music in a fun but educational way. VCS Adult Choir is a non-auditioned choir but singers must be able to match pitch in order to handle the repertoire and develop part singing. If you are not sure, please contact Gerda Blok-Wilson to arrange a placement interview.

Each session will offer a variety of musical styles including the classics, jazz, folk, musical theatre and popular. It’s a great way to improve vocal technique and choral skills but also meet people in our neighbourhood. The session ends with either one or two shows.

Responsibilities include making a concerted effort to make all rehearsals and have a good time! Some electronic practice files will be made available to help learn the songs. *Singers should not apply if they are not able to sing in the shows. Fees include music.

If you are not sure whether this is the choir for you, please feel free to contact Gerda to arrange an interview.

Financial Assistance is supported for singers who feel they are not able to pay the full fee. This opportunity is based on a “pay what you can basis”. Please contact me directly regarding this matter before registering for a choir session.
