Back to School...Back to Singing!

While everyone is sad to see the summer go, September also marks the return of choir!! This month, we  start up our 21st season.  

The Senior Choir heads to Timberline Ranch this weekend for their annual retreat.  Its such a great way to start off the season. Old choir buddies get to catch up, and newbies get a chance to meet the people they'll be singing with for the rest of the year, and have a chance to see what the SCC is all about!  Along with getting a leg up on the repertoire for the 1st choir semester, the singers also have lots of fun on retreat, enjoying the activities Timberline offers (Horses, and climbing, and swimming- oh my!), and enjoying each others' company!

After the weekend away at Timberline, the Chamber Choir is very excited to be joining SCC alum Elicia Mackenzie at Blue Frog Studio in White Rock to record back-ups for her upcoming Christmas CD.  Elicia sang with the choir back when it was still a fairly new thing in the White Rock/South Surrey community, and went on to win Andrew Lloyd Webber's reality TV competition "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria", meaning she was cast in the role of Maria in Toronto's revival of "The Sound of Music"!  It will be great to collaborate with Elicia next week.

Regular rehearsals start for the Senior, Chamber and Youth choirs on Wednesday, September 12th, with the Junior and Intermediate Training Choirs beginning rehearsals the following week,  on Wednesday, September 19th.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and making beautiful music together!!
