Sound Connection helps singers find their voice

New season starts on Thursday in Coombs, no auditions and no experience necessary

Sound Connection in Coombs will be starting off a new season this Thursday.

Sound Connection Choir sings popular and contemporary music and is seeking men and women who love music, singing and have a desire to perform.

“We have been directing Sound Connection in Coombs at the Soundgarden for over two years now and it has been a huge benefit to our community, as well as helping people ‘find’ their voice,” choir co director Megan Keene told The NEWS in an e-mail.

“Many of our members have little to no experience and we are constantly finding that some have never been provided with a safe place to sing. Others have been told at some point in their lives that they can’t or shouldn’t sing, and it’s amazing to see these people singing, and finding friendships within this supportive group, so we are seeking new members to join us in song.”

Sound Connection meets in Coombs Thursday evenings from 7-9 p.m. at The Soundgarden starting Sept. 10.

Vocalists will be instructed on vocal warm-up, exercises, improv and technique. Singers will be provided with lyrics and recordings of the music.

There are no auditions and no experience is necessary, but Keene said “an eagerness to learn is a must.”

It costs $70 for seven sessions with another seven weeks following. Pre-registration is required as space is limited. For more information or to register visit www.esteemvocals.com or call Megan Keene at 250-228-2467.
