Qualicum Bay and Coombs choirs looking for new singers

Six and seven week Sound Connection choirs a great place for new singers

The Sound Connection choirs in Qualicum Bay and Coombs have just finished practices with their first choirs of the season and are looking for new singers to join their ranks.

“Its a great place to come if you don’t have any experience,” said one of the choirs’ directors, Megan Keene.

According to Keene, the choir offers a safe and comfortable environment for people to learn. Singers also have the luxury and help of two teachers. Each session of Sound Connection is taught by Keene and Sharon Tomczyk.

The Coombs group meets on Thursdays from 7-9 p.m. at the Soundgarden starting today (Oct. 23). This group will meet for seven weeks at a cost of $70. Qualicum Bay meets on Tuesday evening from 7-9 p.m. at the Lighthouse Community Centre starting Oct. 28. As this choir will not meet on Tues. Nov. 11, this choir will only meet for six sessions at a cost of $60.

Singers have until the second week of practice to register. To register, visit esteemvocals.com or call Keene at 250-228-2467.
