Community Choir @ Clinic Atrium
Oct 20 @ 7:15 pm – 9:00 pm

The Community Choir Needs You! (and you need it)

After each of the past several Community Choir concerts I’ve been told by enthusiastic audience members that it was the best concert ever.

So why is this a problem?

It’s a problem because I’m also hearing from people that they would like to join the choir, but they think they’re not good enough.

My reply is invariably, “You’re as good as anyone who is in the choir now.”

But they don’t believe me.

But really, guys, it’s true!

Ask any Community Choir member: Did they think they would be able to sing music in French, Italian, German, Spanish, Latin, Swahili? Did they think they could learn a bit about reading music without the customary pain and suffering? Did they imagine that they could, as a group, remain on pitch, to the surprise and delight of their benevolent dictator? Did they anticipate that, after dragging themselves away from home after supper on Monday evenings they would return home cheerful and energized?

Studies* have shown that group singing has remarkable mental and physical benefits.
Experience has shown that we can do better than we thought we could.
Step outside your comfort zone, and see how good it feels!

Questions? Call Dr. Laura at 250-335-0470. Or just show up:

Rehearsals are on Mondays at 7:15 in the Clinic Atrium, starting September 15th
