Whistler Chorus

UN International Day of Peace

Once again,  the Whistler Children’s Chorus and Whistler Singers will be singing at Whistler’s Olympic Plaza for the UN International Day of Peace on Saturday, September 21st.

Choir members, please be at the fire pit in the Olympic Plaza before 7:00pm and dress warmly.  We start at 7:00pm and should be finished by 7:30pm.

Welcome Back to a New Season of Singing!

We hope you’ve had a great summer, filled with lots of fun adventures.  Now it’s time to sing…

Rehearsals begin September 10th for the Junior and Intermediate Choirs.  As usual, Junior Choir rehearses 3 – 4pm while Intermediate Choir rehearses 4 – 5pm.  Rehearsals are in the Music Room at Spring Creek Community School.  This year we will be presenting a joint spring concert – Gonna Build an Ark – with the Pemberton Children’s Choir.  It will be a super fun concert with music all about animals.  In order to facilitate the two choirs singing together in concert, we have planned two joint workshops.  The first workshop is all day at Signal Hill Elementary School in Pemberton on Saturday, October 5th.  We are arranging transportation for this.  On Friday, February 28th, our Pemberton friends will join us at Spring Creek Community School for an after school pizza party and singing.  April 4th will be our Pemberton concert and April 5th will be our Whistler concert so mark the dates in your calendar now!

Of course, we have lots more to sing for.  September 21st (Saturday), we’ll be singing for UN International Peace Day in the Olympic Plaza and we have two really great songs to learn right away.  Remembrance Day sees us at the Fire Hall in the village and then it’s on to the holiday season.  As well as our annual concert to benefit the Whistler Food Bank (December 7th), we will be caroling through the village on December 23rd and ending up at Millennium Place for a community Christmas Sing-a-Long.  Of course, December 24th is Christmas Eve and the annual Christmas Eve Carol Service.  This year marks 30 years of this Christmas tradition so we’re planning to make it extra special.

The Chorus will be rehearsing with the Whistler Singers this year – Thursdays from 7 until 9 pm at Whistler Secondary.  For our older singers, this gives them the opportunity to sing larger and more challenging works of music and to sing with other more mature voices.  Our young men will benefit from singing with the men in the adult choir. The Whistler Singers are looking forward to having your voices join in song with them.  Chorus and Whistler Singers rehearsals begin Thursday, September 5th.  Looking forward to seeing you there!

Library, Cake and Drumming, Oh My!

Thank you to everyone who came to sing at the Whistler Public Library’s celebration of opening on Sundays last weekend.  The choir sang and everyone enjoyed the food and cake.

The junior and intermediate choirs had a busy week with a percussion workshop with professional percussionist Lauri Lyster on Tuesday.

The choirs worked with Lauri to add percussion to some of the favourites that will be performed at the year end concert on Sunday, May 5.

Lots of shakers - can you guess the old favourite they're singing?

Thank you to the Whistler Arts Council for making this workshop possible.  The choirs had a great time and look forward to performing what they learned at the concert.

The choir had a great time marching through the Village as part of the Whistler Cup Parade last Friday and singing O Canada.  Thank you to all of those who came out for the parade and to all the parents who took pictures.
