Harmony Chorus schedule set for holiday season    

Submitted by Lloyd Johnston, Chilliwack Harmony Chorus/Voice file photo

 

Members of the Chilliwack Harmony Chorus perform at Chilliwack City Hall in April 2013.

 

ur director has been challenging us with a number of new songs. It will be interesting to see how it all comes together.


It has taken a couple months for our Christmas performance schedule to take shape and settle down.

 

I wanted to share it with you to give an idea of the areas we are reaching. As life would have it I'm sure there will be some additional last minute changes. Our schedule to date include the following:

This year, since we are just getting this group off the ground, all donations are going toward chorus operations. We sing for the purpose of the preservation and encouragement of barbershop style singing in our community.

 

Once we get our male membership up to above fifteen retaining our charter should no longer be at risk. The current administration needs some bolstering to share the organizational workload. It has been a few years since we have held an annual show. We are once again trying to work toward offering that style of entertainment to our community.


Thank you for your continued support.


We wish you and yours a most enjoyable Christmas and fabulous New Year.
