The Bowen Island Community Choir offered up another spirited and heartfelt choral performance on Saturday, December 12th at Cates Hill Chapel. Director, Ellen MacIntosh was at the helm of a fifty-five voice choir who, with the accompaniment of Sheilagh Sparks, sang jazz, swing, folk, Celtic, sacred and gospel music with gusto and fervor.
Guests Fineen Davis on oboe, Cam Hayduk -- none other than Elvis, Brian Hoover on percussion and choral member Shasta Martinuk on flute, brought additional charm and beauty to the program.
The Community Choir is an open choir and no auditions are required. All are welcome. Rumour has it that the choir is on the lookout for male tenors at this point but of course all singers of both genders and all levels of ability are invited to join. Rehearsals at Cates Hill Chapel begin again on January 11th in preparation for a Spring concert. Please call Choir Manager, Lorraine Ashdown if you have any questions. x2061.
