Letz Sing offers six-week term

This month, Letz Sing offers the opportunity to sing in community, and the chance to learn songs, rounds and chants to sing together and with our children.

Choir director Tina Filippino will start a new, shortened six-week term beginning during the week of March 24 and ending April 28.  This condensed term is a chance for newcomers to try singing in a group, as well as providing Letz Sing regulars the opportunity to review some old favourites.

Tina is returning from a visit to Ethiopia and South Africa, as a delegate with the Stephen Lewis Foundation, Grandmother to Grandmother Campaign, where she has participated in visiting projects, and has witnessed firsthand how singing together strengthens community.

She believes that, to create a community that sings together, we need some common songs.

No musical experience is necessary to participate in this new term.

The choirs meet once a week in three locations:

• Mondays at 7:30 p.m. in Courtenay at the Lower Native Sons Hall;

• Tuesdays at 10 a.m. in Comox at the Lions Den;

• Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. in Black Creek at Halbe Hall.

The fee for the six-session term is $66, with sliding scale available.
