What a privilege it was to have Dinah Helgeson with us eh? She helped develop us SO much.
Cranbrook Community Choir is singing a concert with Cranbrook Community Band on Dec 16th, Saturday, at 2pm at Knox Presbyterian Church. Fernie Community Choir is singing Friday night, Dec 15th at 7pm at Holy Family Catholic Church.
Fernie Choir is also singing tomorrow at the civic memorial for those who tragically passed away at the arena.
Choir starts in the first week of september for both choirs. Fernie will be starting off at full steam with a big list of repertoire for our Oct 20th concert, Oktoberfest. This concert will be a fundraiser for our Banff Trip in April of 2018.
We also welcome Dinah Helgeson Nov 3,4 after she works with the cranbrook choir on Nov 2.
Cranbrook will be starting off with a selection of music for fall/winter, preparing for a Christmas Concert. I look forward to starting up after such a successful beginning. Dinah Helgeson will work with us on Nov 2. She is a wonderful treat to work with, she will help us all get better as singers and artists.
Both choirs are starting a little earlier this fall, so the session is a little longer, which means more singing! Bring out your friends!
Choir is up and running again, tonight we will start on Hunker Down, run through Quiet Centre' do Bonse Aba, and hopefully get to a song called 'Since First I Saw Your Face'
See you tonight! Drive safe, I think the roads are ok now. Parking will still likely be bad.
The snow is crazy and it's getting heavy, so I am cancelling choir today. See you next week! Sorry to cancel, I was really looking forward to choir tonight, I have had to cancel both of my choirs this week. stay warm!
Here's a version of hunker down to help you begin to learn how it goes. We probably won't sing this quickly, but I like this version.
So, my Dad has made his living doing websites forever but I never spent any time doing it. Anyway, here it is. This is for you, my choir members, especially those of you who don't have facebook. It's also a way for me to get away from social media and focus all of my communication here. I will post videos of music we are doing, info regarding the choirs plans for festival performances and travel etc.
For instance, my first notice will be to everyone in Fernie that I have cancelled choir for tomorrow night due to crazy snow from here to Fernie and everywhere in between.
I will be putting the website together slowly, don't forget about good posture!
