Why we sing:
For many people, group singing has mostly been limited to an intimate gathering of friends and family coming together to sing Happy Birthday, but in recent years, singing in a choir has become an immensely popular pastime. Coupled with the fulfilment of learning a skill in the pursuit of self-improvement; joining our choir has the added benefit of providing opportunities to make new friends while working together to create something beautiful.
The Lakeshore Community Choir: Our Choir started in 2009, with a dad, and a handful of moms and their kids - the LUUC Family Choir. Today, the choir has reached new harmonious heights, with a membership of over 40 enthusiastic singers from across the West Island and beyond. We sing in the baroque, classical and contemporary styles with inspiring messages about peace, community building and protecting the earth.
Choir practices are both fun and challenging. We are taught proper posture, effective breathing, and producing good tone and beautiful harmonies. Don't read music? No problem. Vocal recordings of Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass parts are created for each piece for those of us who don't read music to allow us to practice at home (or on long car rides!).
Choir practices are every other Sunday at 12:15 (starting January 11, 2015). Check out our online Choir Meetup site to join or for more information: http://www.meetup.com/Lakeshore-Community-Choir/
You don't have to be a member of LUUC to join the Lakeshore Community Choir. You just need to love singing with others! Come Sing With Us!!!
