Play With the Choir

Do you love to sing (even though you might not consider yourself “a singer” or only feel comfortable singing alone in the car)? Singing in a group has significant benefits whether you’re on key or not – science says it’s like “an infusion of the perfect tranquilizer, the kind that both soothes your nerves and elevates your spirits.”

We’ve had a blast in our first term and our participants can attest to that (170 of them!)
PLAYING WITH CHOIR is an opportunity to come together in a large group to learn simple 3 part harmonies for popular songs of today and past decades and belt them out for the simple joy of singing. No auditions, no solos, no stars, just fun.
Playing With Choir is at the Guild on October 24th 7 PM to 9 PM.

Barb spent most of her career as a retail entrepreneur, opening Whipper Snapper, The Fun Toy Store, and The Uncommon Grocer in Charlottetown. Over the past 5 years, painting has become a big part of her life. Influenced by her mother who passed away in 2002, picking up a paintbrush didn’t seem like a big leap.
