Singing for seniors

We won’t be having a regular rehearsal tomorrow!  Instead, we’ll be singing for the residents at the Haro Park Centre seniors’ residence in the West End.  We’ve sung there before, and the audience is always very appreciative.  We’re always glad to be able to share our music with people who aren’t able to make it to our regular performances, and connect with our community’s valued elders.  We’ll return to our regular schedule next week.

Once again Out in Harmony (Vancouver’s Gay, Bi, Trans, Queer, Lesbian & Friends adult community choir) is holding a fundraiser to help keep the choir running smoothly, singing proudly, and being an active and positive voice in our community.

We are selling coffee beans provided by the Sunshine Coast Coffee Company, a local (based in Gibsons) coffee company committed to providing organic fair-trade coffee.  Whole beans come in 1 pound bags for $16 each, and come in two varieties:

DARK HOUSE BLEND (Their biggest seller, a blend of dark and distinctive coffees with a full flavor, bold taste and rich aroma); or
RAINFOREST (A medium roast of the highest quality Brazilian coffee beans. Soft bodied with an earthy flavor and subtle walnut notes).

If you or someone you know would be interested in purchasing some delicious, organic coffee beans while helping support our community choir, please let us know.  Orders and money must be received by Tuesday March 27, 2012; we will deliver the beans to you starting Wednesday April 11th.
