Young people invited to sing their joy

Chorus continues its​ winter 2016 season start-up Monday, Jan. 11

Young people are invited to raise their voices in song this winter as part of the SingYourJoy Young Adult Chorus.

The chorus, based out of Oak Bay United Church, continues its​ winter 2016 season start-up Monday, Jan. 11, and welcomes anyone interested to come by from 7 to 9 p.m. (doors open at 6 p.m. for registration). This is the last opportunity to join the group for this season, with rehearsals continuing Mondays at the church through winter.

SingYourJoy Young Adult Chorus is a free, non-auditioned chorus for young adults from all walks of life, who enjoy not only the music but also building friendships, and growing community, organizers say.

Returning for its fifth anniversary season under the direction of Christine Chepyha and Gordon Miller, the 13-week session is packed with opportunities for the singers, aged 16 to 29.

Among the highlights will be the chorus’s work with guest clinician/conductor Willi Zwozdesky, who will join the singers in performance at “Everything Possible – SingYourJoy in Concert,” Friday, April 8 at First Metropolitan United Church.

Join the SingYourJoy Young Adult Chorus this coming Monday, Jan. 11, at Oak Bay United Church, 1355 Mitchell St.

For more information, check out the chorus online at email or text: 250-882-5668 or 250-213-1948.
