TUESDAYS – BYTOWN VOICES COMMUNITY CHOIR
Although the choir is not able to prepare for a December Concert this fall, we will be
meeting online each Tuesday evening from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (from Sept. 8 to Dec.
8). We will be learning some new music and maintaining our vocal cords in a relaxed
environment, with plenty of musical and technological help. We will all be experiencing
this new way of meeting and singing together and are happy to welcome new members,
men and women, to join us. For more information, see our website at bytownvoices.com
WEDNESDAYS – SHOUT SISTER! CHOIR
There are 25 chapters of Shout Sister! Choir in Ontario and we are constantly growing.
Shout Sister! takes an unorthodox approach to choral singing. We learn from recorded
tracks, so we require no reading of music. Our method is fresh and fun, and we are a
warm and welcoming community. We use Zoom to meet virtually every Wednesday
afternoon (1-3 p.m.) and Thursday evening (7-9 p.m.). Everyone is welcome. We would
love to have you join us! For information on joining, please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org or visit shoutsisterchoir.ca.
