The new term for the Let Sing Community Choir begins Feb. 11.

Letz Sing is part of the UBUNTU Network, a growing network of community choirs who believe that the joy of singing is a universal birthright, and that together, regardless of musical background, we can help improve the world by joining voices in song.

This past week choir directors from all over North America gathered in Victoria for the third biannual UBUNTU Choir Network reunion.  For a full week choir directors  have been taking turns sharing their experiences, their skills, and most importantly, their songs.

From this rich musical stew, Letz Sing director Tina Filippino will select this coming term's repertoire of songs chants and rounds. It should be an exciting term.

If you have been wanting to add singing to your regular schedule, Letz Sing offers three sessions weekly to choose from. All music is taught in the oral tradition of call and response, no experience is necessary.

There is no performance commitment with this choir. At the end of each term all three Letz Sing choirs gather to sing together in a harmonious afternoon that is called a Big Sing. There is no audience; just singers at this spirited gathering.

If you are new in town, the Letz Sing Choir is a great place to find a little harmony and a friendly, supportive community spirit.

Isn’t time you were singing? Come and see what is simmering.

The Letz Sing community welcomes every voice.

There's a sliding scale available. No one misses because of money.
