For our 2018-19 season, Music Director Annabelle Paetsch ([email protected]) and choral assistant Tegan Peemoeller invite you to participate in this exciting venture, intended to serve as a musical bridge between church and community.  

The goals of this non-auditioned choir are to bring adults together to sing, learn, laugh, and experience all the documented health benefits of singing in a choir while connecting to the community.   Repertoire includes folk songs, tunes from movies and musicals, popular songs from different decades, and some local/Canadian compositions, and is shared with the congregation of St Stephen's in 20-25 minute "mini-concerts" following Sunday morning services, three to four times a year. As well, the choir may go out into the wider community for special occasions such as carolling and longer performances.

Rehearsals are at St Stephen's Anglican Church, 885 22nd Street (across from the West Van community and seniors centres) on Thursdays 4:00-5:30 p.m.  Suggested drop-in is $10 per rehearsal; advance donations per term are encouraged.
Spring Term: April 4-May 30  
Mini-concert date (beginning c. 11:10 a.m. in St. Stephen's sanctuary): 
June 2 - Songs for Summer
The program will feature favourite tunes from musicals and films.   The choir will be joined by pianist Lorna Horwood, flutist Nancy Riecken, and percussionist Hilary Clark.  All are welcome.
Please note that there will be no rehearsals after May 30 until September 2019.
We hope to see you soon.
