Anyone can join the Choir, even if they do not read music or have experience singing in harmony. The Choir co-directors, Sue Chick Denton and Lee Ann Decoteau, are returning for another energy- filled and fun year.
Sue and Lee Ann are well known on the local music scene and convey an infectious enthusiasm for music-making. This year the VWMA is planning on introducing an auditioned ensemble, Con Moto, to accommodate requests for performances at special events and provide music at seniors’ residences and the hospital, for example.
The highly popular, small, all-male ensemble, Men of the Mountains, is also gearing up for a new season. Workshops are planned, to help choir members enhance their skills.
Choir rehearsals will be held every Tuesday evening from 7:30 to 9:30 at St. Michael’s Anglican Church in Canmore, from September 4 through the end of April.
New singers are welcome to attend the first three rehearsals before deciding to join.
