An opportunity to share your voice with the community is much easier than you might imagine.
The Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra Chorus, which began rehearsals on September 10 for this season’s performances, is looking for people over the age of 16 to join the group.
“We are a community choir, with members from Victoria and the West Bank who sing choral-orchestral music in conjunction with the Sooke Philharmonic,” said SPC administrative assistant Sharon Johnson. “Singing in a community choir like SPC is a great way to meet new people, challenge yourself musically, improve vocal technique, and perform a wide range of classical choral repertoire.
The Sooke Philharmonic community has been making music on the West Shore and in Sooke since 1997.
There are no audition or participation fees, but singers are encouraged to join the Sooke Philharmonic Society for a minimum donation of $25 per year.
The choir presents two programs each season under the direction of conductor and conductor Nicholas Fairbank, with Handel’s Messiah scheduled for December and Haydn’s oratorio, The Creation, scheduled for next May.
Rehearsals, held on Saturday mornings, alternate between Holy Trinity Church in Sooke and St. Mary’s Church in Metchosin.
