 Vancouver CanSing “love to come together to sing as one” reports  Zoe McKnight in the Vancouver Sun article, July 23, 2012: The Power of Singing a Secular Hallelujah

 She writes:

“When conductor and music educator Gerda Blok-Wilson moved to East Van fromPrince Georgethree years ago, she found many of the choirs were auditioned and she wanted one completely open to the public.  She started CanSing in 2010 with 11 adults and 15 kids.  Those numbers have tripled, with 30 adults and 45 kids.  They cover classic, spiritual, folk and popular tunes, and are located in Riley Park, so most members can walk to rehearsal to get their “singers fix.”

“It’s more than I envisioned.  And for me it was a great way for me to meet people inVancouver,” Blok-Wilson said.

 Blok-Wilson hopes more people, even those who lack musical training, take part in singing.  “It’s only natural”, she said, “People sing with their families or they hum on the street.  But they do love to come together and sing as one.”
