Congratulations on two wonderful SEIZE THE DAY shows

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

Seize the day 3 - 14On behalf of Erica (accompanist), Andrea (assistant), Lucy (assistant) and me, I have to say that it’s been amazing to see the skill development this year.  The Level 2 & 3 singers “wowed” the audience with their expression, part singing and choreography! 

The commitment to rehearsal and creating an engaging performance by most of our members was reinforced by the standing ovation at the evening show! Congratulations!!

Congratulations to everyone for your fantastic performances at the HEART AND SOUL.

CanSing Choristers: CONGRATULATIONS!

Sunday, November 28th, 2010

Wow, the audience had so many compliments for the performers & it was great to see a full house!

I was proud to be able to lead the first CanSing show in our own neighbourhood and I think that I can speak for Gemma, too! Overall, I felt everyone’s performance was clean and very exciting and it was evident that each chorister was enjoying what they were doing.

I know that you’ll want to take the opportunity to register right away for the next 8 week session, begins Jan 18, which will culminate with the show, “Everything’s Coming up Roses, Saturday, March 12, 2:30pm.  It’s going to be a dynamic show including musical theatre, seasonal songs and the final number will be a mass choir arrangement of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”.

Please help spread the news to other prospective choristers!

I am also in the process of organizing a recording session for both the Primary and Intermediate groups.  That’s always exciting and a great learning experience. You can listen to some of the music that I’ve recorded with my choristers over the years when you visit my website and it’s under the heading “music”.  Last spring, my recording kids put out the musicals, “Simon Fraser and the Raging River” and “Sound Advice”.  Both musicals will be published soon through THEMES AND VARIATIONS.

Once again, thank you for your support and enthusiasm and I look forward to seeing you all in January!
