Don't Let the light go outIt’s going to be another great season! Thank you to those who sent music suggestions. If they’re not used in this concert, they’ve been added ti a list for future shows.

The approximately 60 – minute show, DON’T LET THE LIGHT GO OUT, Saturday, November 21st will feature songs from the classic, jazz, popular, musical theatre and folk genre (I’ll be sending a sneak preview in the next week). Peter Yarrow’s Light one Candle (Peter, Paul and Mary – 25th Anniversary Concert via @YouTube)) will be the mass choir selection (all choirs will join together in singing). Choir rehearsals will begin Tuesday, September 22nd, Cityview Church (4370 Sophia St).

Fees have gone up slightly to cover the cost of professional fees, larger rehearsal and performance facilities. The updated information can be found at the website.

The VCS Adult choir Tuesday rehearsal time will remain the same. However, because of growth and strong skill level development in our Level 2/3 youth choir, a new auditioned VCS Level 4 (age 10 – 16) project choir has been added. Click below for information. This meant that the Tuesday rehearsal formations for Level 1, 2 & 3 needed to be revised to fit Level 4 choir and rehearsal time available.

Early registration is encouraged. Last year, all choirs were closed before September rehearsal start up.

Click the following for more information and registration.

Vancouver CanSing LEVEL 1 (ages 5 – 6 – k, grade 1)

Rachel Sanders I really enjoyed recording during choir practice over the past few weeks, thanks again for giving me the opportunity to do that. My radio storytelling course is finished… I wrote a blog post about the experience and posted the finished audio piece on my website:

spring full choir revisedVancouver CanSing is ready to “kick-off” its 5th season! Thank you so much to those who have already registered!  This guarantees that we can have the music for you first rehearsal.

While the Level 2 & 3 choirs are full (we have a short waiting list & hope to place these singers), we still have room in:

Vancouver Cansing Level 1 Choir (ages 5 – 6)

Help SPREAD THE NEWS.  One of the biggest challenges is getting the word out.

The theme this session will be “Dancing through Life” and the confirmed mass choir song (all choirs – 120 voices!!) will be the Leonard Cohen “Hallelujah” (requested by many to celebrate our 5th year).

I’m really excited about the eclectic repertoire – something for everyone.  I’ll send a preview of some of the songs in the next few days.

Along with our artistic team Kevin, Andrea, Lucy and Erin, I look forward to singing with you this term.

VCS is now on twitter: Please follow for news items and singing tips.
