Whistler Singers

Remembrance Day

Our singers have been hard at work learning their songs for tomorrow’s municipal Remembrance Day ceremony here in Whistler.

Through the efforts of local citizens, our cenotaph has been moved from the village fire hall to a more accessible site in Olympic Plaza. This will be our first year at the new site so we took a short ‘field trip’ a few weeks ago during choir practice to visit the site and sing our songs there.

This year’s ceremony will also be the first time that the bilingual version of O Canada will be sung as part of our ceremony.

If you’re in Whistler on Saturday, November 11th, our Remembrance Day ceremony begins at 10:30am at the cenotaph in Olympic Plaza (by the flags). Come and join the Whistler Children’s Chorus and the Whistler Singers as we honour those brave men and women who have served our country.

Whistler remembers

We were so proud of the amazing singing as well as the respectful behaviour of our choir members during Whistler’s Remembrance Day ceremony. Despite the rain, there were many in attendance.  The sound was great – thanks to our amazing sound guy Andrew – and the Whistler Children’s Chorus and Whistler Singers were in fine voice.

Whistler Children’s Chorus ends season on a high note

The children’s choir finished up a year filled with singing, dancing and fun with their concert on Sunday, May 1st at the Catholic church. Beginning in September with the UN International Day of Peace, the choir had a busy fall They presented Annie the musical (with only 7 weeks of rehearsals!), sang for the municipal Remembrance Day ceremony as well as several Christmas gigs including the annual Christmas Eve Carol Service.

The choir traveled to Squamish to take part in the Howe Sound Music festival in the spring which was a great experience for all.

Howe Sound Music Festival

A lot of repertoire was explored this year from unison to 3 part harmonies. The singers were up to the challenge and sang beautifully.
