Why not take in this free (yes, free) 1 ½ hour workshop and have a try at singing with a group of men? This is an open workshop for men to introduce group singing in a fun and informal setting.
Monday, August 28, at the Elks Hall - 231 6th Street in Downtown Courtenay -
Starting at 7:00 p.m., running for 1 ½ hours, we’ll finish at 8:30 p.m. and can then return to our families or take a swift pint at a local pub!
There will be no music to read, you do not have to have sung in a group before. The event is open to men of all ages, and prior choral singing experience is not required.
The session is sponsored by Celebration Singers and will be led by Jenn Forsland, well-known local performer and choir director in the Comox Valley. She will be aided and abetted by Sean Mooney, the go-to piano accompanist in the Valley. There are some basics to learn, if you haven't done singing before, and we will start with those. Very quickly the group will be singing together in harmony.
Group singing is on the rise in the Comox Valley, with a wide variety of choirs to choose from. The Celebration Singers are sponsoring this workshop in the hopes that the experience will encourage some men to think about joining our male singers in the tenor and bass sections of the choir. But there is no obligation, this workshop is all about having fun, singing together and learning in this one-time workshop environment. We welcome all and sundry men singers, from choirs in the area, as well as men not associated with any choir, but curious about what it’s like to sing in groups.
