Voices needed for choir’s biggest event

The Rivernotes Choir is celebrating its fifth season with its biggest event ever

The Rivernotes Choir performed outdoors earlier this year. Now they are practicing for a holiday performance.

Ding Dong Merrily on High!

The Rivernotes Choir is celebrating its fifth season with its biggest event ever, a Christmas concert extravaganza Dec. 21 featuring various singers along with the choir.

The concert will feature every kind of Christmas song, a narration and some traditional Christmas atmosphere with costumes, punch, and visiting with neighbours.

But enthusiasm is not enough, says Judith Quinlan music director for the group.

“The choir recently lost a number of its alto singers, just because of changing life plans, which is a perfectly normal event,” said Quinlan in a press release to the Gazette. “Except in this case the flux has left this important voice group struggling. So we are putting out a call for all women and girls who maybe have never been in a choir (or have), who like to sing but have never had lessons (or have) who are maybe thinking of trying us out. Please, we need you now!”

The Rivernotes Choir is Cowichan Lake’s “favourite women’s choir,” said Quinlan. “No seriously, we’re an easy-to-get-along with group and every little bit helps. We welcome all our singers with open arms. And this fall it’ll be Christmas every week!”

The Rivernotes Choir practices every Monday night 6 to 8 p.m. at the Lake Cowichan 55-plus Activity Centre (the former Seniors Centre) and welcome all ages and all skill levels.
