It’s that time again: Out in Harmony will be starting rehearsals soon! Whether you sang with us last year, have been away for a few years, or have been thinking of checking us out, we’d love to see you. If you have any friends you think would enjoy singing with us, we’d love to see them, too! (Even if you can’t make it for the first couple of rehearsals, feel free to join us when you can.)
Our first rehearsal of the new season will be on Sept. 4. As always, rehearsals are Tuesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:45 at St. Margaret’s Cedar Cottage Anglican Church, 1530 E. 22nd Ave. (Please don’t wear anything scented to choir events, and be aware that we have one member who has a severe allergy to marijuana/hemp, so please don’t smell of that, either.)
This year, we will be singing at the Walk For Life on Sunday, Sept. 23, so the first few rehearsals will include some new music, and some singing through of last year’s music in preparation. (The new music for our January concert is going to be all Canadian, though perhaps not the Canadian music you might expect!)
If you have any questions, feel free to browse our FAQs or send us an e-mail.
We look forward to seeing you!
The PRIDE festival this year was very hot, very crowded, and very fun. Thanks to everyone who took part, whether by being in the parade, spectating, visiting or staffing the booths, or just hanging out and soaking up the festivities.
Though we as a choir are not rehearsing over the summer, several of our members & friends will be getting together on Sunday August 19th at the outdoor showing of Dirty Dancing in David Lam park (1300 blockof Pacivic Blvd in Yaletown). The movie starts at dusk (around 8:30pm), and a bunch of us will be staking out a good spot early and gathering around 6:30 for a picnic before hand. Come and join us for food, fun, and singing along with the movie. Everyone welcome!
I hope everyone has a joyous and exuberant PRIDE this year! Please be sure to visit our booth at the Sunset Beach Pride Festival on Sunday, August 5th. We’ll have friendly choir members there happy to talk to you, answer questions, and give you the inside scoop on what the choir is really like.
Please note there has been some question about our booth’s location this year as we have gotten shifted around a little, but the latest update, as of 5:30pm Saturday August 4th, is that we will be close to our usual location, backed up against Beach Avenue, about midway down the line of booths.
We look forward to seeing you there!
