This is Myriam’s first year in a choir since high school and she is very excited to be singing with Out in Harmony! Myriam teaches grade 4/5 at Hastings Elementary Community School. She is also a member of PEN (Pride Education Network), which advocates for an inclusive, respectful environment for all students, staff and families, regardless of their actual or perceived sexual orientation and/or gender identity, within all B.C. educational institutions, through the development of concrete supports, policies, resources and actions. She also travels around the province and gives workshops for teachers on anti-transphobia/homophobia education.
During her spare time she likes being outside, gardening or walking her friend Tuk. She also enjoys discovering new vegetarian dishes, reading a good book and knitting. Myriam plays the piano and music has always played a big role in her life. She is thrilled to have found a choir as wonderful as Out in Harmony!
Out in Harmony would like to thank two donors to our 2009-2010 season:
The Health Employees Union
Trikinetic Massage Therapy
The generosity of donors is critical to the choir’s health and well-being. Without them, we could not continue to realize our vision of singing together and bringing our music to the community. We truly appreciate your support and commitment!
Out in Harmony would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of the individuals and companies who made the silent auction at our recent “What’s in a Name?” concert such a success!
Museum of Anthropology
Melriches Coffee House

Out in Harmony would like to wish everyone a happy Pride season as our annual summer celebrations begin. One of our members was in Seattle this weekend, and caught the rainbow flag flying from the Space Needle:
Speaking of Pride, we will have a table at Pride in Vancouver on Sunday, August 1st, and will post further details for you soon!
