A new choir is starting up in Lighthouse Country for all adults in the area who love to sing.

“We’re really excited to be spreading more music around our communities, as well as helping others “find” their voice,” said co-director of the choir, Megan Keene.

Keene and co-director Sharon Tomczyk are starting up the choir, after a successful year directing Sound Connection, a choir in Coombs at the Soundgarden.

Keene said many of their members in that choir had little to no experience and thoroughly enjoyed themselves with the music and also finding new friendships. Vocalists in the choir will receive instruction and guidance on vocal technique, harmony and improvisational singing.

The Qualicum Bay Sound Connection Choir will meet Tuesday nights at the Lighthouse Community Centre, starting Sept. 16  from 7 to 9 p.m. The choir will sing contemporary and popular music from the ‘60s to today, including many uplifting numbers and international songs. Only an eagerness to learn is required. The choir runs six weeks and costs $60. Pre-registration is required. Visit www.esteemvocals.com to register.

Registration is also open for the Sound Connection choir in Coombs. This choir runs Thursday nights at the Soundgarden starting Sept. 11, from 7 to 9 p.m. Six sessions cost $60, preregister at www.thesoundgarden.org.
