Quadra Island’s community choir will perform Sing into Spring on Sunday at the Quadra Community Centre, and a silent auction fundraiser will raise money for future choir outreach.

“Our silent auction has a great list of items to bid on, to help us build a funding base for future choir outreach and community choral workshops,” says Quadra Singers Society president Darcy Mitchell.

Silent auction items include:

  • An evening of music given by a cellist and pianist.
  • An introduction to the game of Mah Jong.
  • Potted eight-foot Full Moon maple tree.
  • Full-day guided fishing tour.
  • Set of two stainless steel wiener roasters.
  • Piano lessons.
  • Gift basket of appetizers, wine and more.
  • Romantic dinner for two by the ocean.
  • Local organic veggies and berries delivered to you.
  • Three-hour digital photography tutorial.
  • Gift certificates for: NIMBUS Paddle, optometry, massage therapy and more.
  • One keepsake book, professionally laid out and coil bound (up to 20 pictures).
  • Four new ladies’ watches, mimicking Rolex, Bulgari and Cartier.
  • Beautiful pottery bowl created by Earthlight Pottery.
  • Quadra Voce sings for your special event (birthday, anniversary).
  • Pimp Your Pad services: organize, de-clutter and add style to your home.

More than 220 people attended Quadra Singers’ December concert, and fundraising through Friends of Quadra Singers last year raised enough money to build much-needed choral risers, now available for community use on Quadra.

“Building on the success of our December concert, Quadra Singers will perform several songs linked by a water theme. Sing into Spring will also feature flute solos and a short set by quartet Quadra Voce,” says choir director Linda Cannon.

As part of its spring session, Quadra Singers performed at a fundraiser for North Island Survivors Healing Society and will also perform at Quadra Elementary and at care homes in Campbell River.

Advance tickets for Sing into Spring ($10 adults) are available on Quadra Island at Hummingbird Arts and Supply, Book Bonanza and Quadra Crafts.

Tickets will also be available at the door ($12 adults).
