Spring Concert Time!

It’s hard to believe that it’s spring concert season again! If you’re in Whistler and looking to enjoy some choral music, next weekend has lots to offer.

Coming up first on Saturday, April 27, The Whistler Singers will present “Sing into Spring”, along with our friends from the Inspirito Vocal Ensemble. The singers from Inspirito will be visiting Whistler from Gibsons, BC, and they are lead by the incredible Sarona Mynhardt. This concert will take place at Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church at 7:30 p.m. on April 27, and admission is by donation.

Next up is the Whistler Children’s Chorus Spring Concert, taking place at Whistler Public Library on Sunday, April 28 at 5 p.m. The kids have been working SO hard this season, and they’ll be singing a great mix of familiar tunes and some newer choral works, all exploring the wonders of the natural world. This concert is free to attend and all ages are welcome!

We hope to see you at one (or both) of these great events!

Thanks to the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation!

You might have seen the photos below on social media recently – we’re celebrating a grant from the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation. The Whistler Singers, Whistler Children’s Chorus, and Whistler Chamber Music Society are now the proud collective owners of a storage container for all of our sheet music, choir risers, and other musical bits and pieces. We’re very grateful for the WB Foundation’s financial support of this project!

Whistler Children’s Chorus Spring Events

We’re off to sing in Squamish! On Friday, April 15th, the choir will be heading down Highway 99 to take part in the Howe Sound Music Festival. For many of our choir members, it will be the first time that they have taken part in a music festival. It’s a great learning experience for everyone – from singing for adjudicators and audience to hearing other choirs and getting feedback about the performances.

The choir year is wrapping up and our annual spring concert is just around the corner. On Friday, April 29th, the Whistler Children’s Chorus will present ‘Sing a Song’ – a concert featuring songs about animals, bugs and much more. The concert takes place at Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church and begins at 7 pm. Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the choir’s beautiful voices and enthusiasm. Admission is free!

Our last choir rehearsal for the 2015 – 2016 season is Tuesday, April 26th. After our concert on Friday, April 29th, it’s time to take a break for everyone. Regular choir rehearsals begin again after the summer ends and school resumes BUT, just to kickstart our 2016 – 2017 choir year, we will be offering Choir Bootcamp during the last week before school begins. Every morning (9 – 11:30 am) from Monday, August 29th to Friday, September 2nd, singers will work together on singing, choreography, and drama. A performance is planned during the afternoon of the final day (Friday, September 2nd). Registration information will be available after May 15th.
