Harrison to host Seniors’ Chorfest

The Harrison Hot Springs Multicultural Choir will host the British Columbia Choral Federation’s 2011 Seniors’ Chorfest from April 13-16.

This event brings together singers from around the province, who register either as a choir or as independent singers. Each registrant receives the music and a practice compact disc for the six songs that will be performed at the final concert. They are asked to learn the music and come to the Chorfest workshops ready to rehearse the songs as part of a choir of over 200 people.

The workshops are conducted by a professional vocal musician, who knows how to take the “work” out of workshop and make it a fun and educational experience. Well-known Vancouver music director, Bruce Pullan, will be the clinician.

The choral workshops will take place at the Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa on April 14 and 15, and a final concert will  be held on Friday evening, April 15, 7:30 p.m. at the Chilliwack First Avenue Christian Assembly Church.

Registration information is available online at http://www.bcchoralfed.com/events/seniors_chorfest; or you can contact Deanna by phone at 604-491-6271 or by e-mail at BCCFseniorschorfest2011@gmail.com
