Quadra Singers plan unique spring concert, welcome new voices

The new year brings a new opportunity for singers to join Quadra’s community choir

The new year brings a new opportunity for singers to join Quadra’s community choir and perform in By Request, a spring concert that will feature Quadra Singers’ choral favourites.

Choir director Linda Cannon suggested the By Request format thinking people would choose songs they’d liked from past seasons, which would offer a huge selection since Quadra Singers has been around for more than 20 years.

“With one exception though, the requests are for songs Quadra Singers hasn’t done before – everything from John Lennon to Vivaldi, German lieders and French children’s song,” Cannon says. “We’ve now got a line-up that reflects the group’s wide breadth of musical interests and tastes. This will guarantee an eclectic program for spring, one that will showcase our diversity and give us a chance to have a lot of fun as we’re learning these songs.”

Quadra Singers wrapped up a busy season in December with its Ceremony of Carols concert followed by a number of performances in Campbell River care homes and at Quadra Elementary. The choir welcomes new members to sing, laugh and learn with us, starting Thursday, Jan. 12, at 6:45 p.m. at the Quadra Community Centre. All voices are welcome – no auditions!
