The Gwaii Singers are tuning up!

  • Sep. 10, 2007 10:00 a.m.

Submitted by Sara Eaton-Hear ye all island wannabe singers!We gave a sterling performance at the music festival, doing our own gig with folk songs, gospel and some jazzy fun. Then we did back up with Julie Blue and The Crabapple Creek Electric Jug Band. THEN we took a break.Now, fall rehearsals begin on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at Skidegate Church at 7 pm.We practice at that time every week: three weeks on Tuesdays at Skidegate Church and the fourth week on Wednesday at the Bakery in Tlell. This is to accommodate our director’s on-call schedule. We’ll be learning parts of Handel’s Messiah, as well a other new music. We’ll do our usual caroling at Christmas (four communities last year) and who knows, maybe a concert (?)Gwaii Singers welcomes new voices. We already have folk from Massett, Port and Tlell and it would be good to add voices from Skidegate and Sandspit. Men are especially appreciated – in fact our male voices need support. Baritones and basses would be a gift. And currently all our tenors are all women’s voices.If you don’t know what you part you sing, come anyway. We’ll find the place that fits your voice. Sopranos, altos, basses, baritones and tenors are all welcome. (That, basically, means high, medium and low.) The more we are, the bigger – better? the choir will be.See you next Tuesday.
