This fall, Valley Voices is pleased to announce they will be holding a program for women who love to sing called “Find Your Voice”. Each week during Find Your Voice participants will experience the learning of a song and will be provided with weekly music education lessons in vocal production and performance. It is a six-week event, one hour per week beginning on October 9 at 6:45 pm. All rehearsals of the group including this event are held in the Christian Education Center at Kentville Baptist Church on 503 Main St, Kentville, NS B4N 1L4.
“Being part of a choral group or choir melds us into the cultural and artistic fabric of the community!” said Paul Grimm, Musical Director of The Valley Voices, The Annapolis Valley’s premier A Cappella female singing group.
“What begins as a love of music grows into an incredible personal bond amongst women who love to sing and perform. We work with singers and bring their skills and talents together to create an incredible musical product which radiates the love of music and friendship in the group.” says Grimm.
The chorus sings a broad variety of music, all A Cappella, including: Show Tunes, Traditional Favorites, Ballads, Up-tempo tunes, Christmas music, and some Sacred songs. Each year the chorus competes in an annual competition of Harmony, Incorporated at Mount Allison University. In June 2018, Valley Voices placed 3rd in the competition of the Atlantic Province choruses and achieved a qualifying score for the International Competition. The chorus also recently won “Gold Medal” Honors at the Annapolis Valley Music Festival for Community Choral Groups in 2018.
We have two very special events as bonuses to the weekly training session. On November 9 and 10, we will be holding a training workshop featuring Debra Lynn, an internationally recognized vocal coach and therapist. This is a ‘Free of Charge” event for all chorus members and our Find Your Voice attendees!
Our members and Find Your Voice attendees who have completed the six-week training, will also be invited to join Valley Voices in a live performance at our Christmas dessert party on November 17, 2018.
Participation in the first evening of the Find Your Voice program on October 9 is free. To continue, there is a nominal registration fee equivalent to $5.00 per lesson for each of the remaining five lessons. All women who love to sing and can carry a tune are welcome to take part. Valley Voices hopes many of the attendees for the Find Your Voice program will enjoy it enough to join the chorus as full-fledged performing members.
