THE RHYTHM & SONG COMMUNITY CHOIR....Come and sing with us!
Almonte, McDonald's Corners & Perth locations
Fees, dates and locations below - ongoing registration
It's never too late to join us.
Rhythm & Song offers a relaxed, supportive, and playful environment for those who want to develop their singing voice, sense of rhythm, and harmony singing skills. Willing, reluctant and experienced singers are welcome, regardless of musical ability or confidence level. There are no auditions or pressures to perform. Come and experience the fun and thrill of singing with others! Teens and adults welcome. Choirs in Almonte, Perth and McDonald's Corners. Details below.
Songs and Method
We sing a variety of material – uplifting chants, rounds, and songs from the folk, world music, and pop traditions. Songs are taught orally - through call and response, review and repetition. Lyrics or simple sheet music are provided when necessary. The ability to read music is NOT required. You’ll be surprised at how quickly you find yourself singing in 2 to 4-part harmony with others.
New singers! You are welcome to come and try two sessions at $12 per session. If the choir is a good fit for you, you are asked to pay the balance for the remainder of the season. For continuity's sake, there is no ongoing drop-in option.
Do I need to bring anything? Please bring water - you will want it. Wear comfortable shoes as we stand to sing. That said, some need to sit. Chairs are available and you are more than welcome to sit for all or part of the sessions. Some do.
Payment info E-transfer, cheques, and cash accepted. If you are someone who does shift work, travels frequently, or is unable to pay the full fee due to limited income - please email me or speak with me privately and we can work something out.
Also, if you have special circumstances such as a job that requires shift work, vacations of two or more weeks, etc. I'd be happy to work something out with you.
Flexibility Once registered for the season, singers are welcome to attend as many sessions in a week as they choose, in any location for no extra fee. This allows you to make up a missed session or simply sing more often.
Any questions? Or to register - Contact Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 613-256-8809 or use the contact link on the side menu.
