Sign up and sing for the pure joy of it this fall

Raise your voice with heart-felt melodies, soulful gospel songs and spirituals, world music, chants and rounds

If you need an added boost of endorphins floating gleefully through your body, join the Sing For Pure Joy! Community Choir.

This is a safe, non-judgmental circle where every voice is welcome. No experience needed and no auditions required – only the desire to make joyful sounds to help access and express the profound joy and beauty at our core.

No written music is used. Raise your voice with heart-felt melodies, soulful gospel songs and spirituals, world music, chants and rounds. Songs from the ridiculous to the sublime! The majority of music in the world comes from the oral tradition and all songs are taught by call and response recognition that this is the most accessible and effective way for the majority of people to learn and retain songs in the longer term.

They gather at the Quadra Community Centre in Room 3 on Monday afternoons from 3-4:30 p.m. beginning on Sept. 9.

Also at The Lions Den in Campbell River (Across from Thrifty’s) on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8 p.m. beginning on Sept. 11.

As Ella Fitzgerald said “The only thing better than singing, is more singing.”

The Fall Term fee allows those enthusiastic singers to participate at all venues.
