An inclusive, non auditioned choir for adults of all skill levels
ABOUT SOUND CONNECTION
The Sound Connection is a non-auditioned choir for women and men (18 yrs and over) who love singing. The Sound Connection is a friendly and encouraging group where we sing contemporary and world music.
Vocalists receive instruction on song parts, harmony, as well as guidance on vocal technique. Each singer also receives recordings of the songs and paper copies of the lyrics. The groups will have the opportunity to perform at local open mics, showcase nights, and community events, should they choose.
No experience necessary - but an eagerness to learn a must. Attendance at all sessions is encouraged
Those registered for the previous session will get first priority in registering for the following sessions. Over the season, we will continue to add to the repertoire of the group, while continuing to practice previously learned songs.

Our winter/spring series will run January to June 2019 (dates T.B.A,) Sessions will be held at The McMillan Arts Center. 113 McMillan Street.
