Silvertones Choir 2017-18

This mixed choir of almost 50 men and women performs throughout the year. From September to December we practice every Friday afternoon and we sing at local Christmas events. We welcome new members at any time. We sing for fun and fellowship.

The Silvertones Choir was formed in 1980.  This active group of men and women aged 55+ share a love of singing and having fun, enjoying songs old and new. They also love to entertain others with their singing and to spread cheer and happiness.

For the 2017/18 season we welcome back our new Director, Ann Sneyd,  an accomplished musician and choral director. We are happy to welcome back our popular pianist,  Mary Lynn Woods.

Our program for this season includes two very special events and a series of sing-outs at local retirement homes. The first has been named “The Day Before” on November 10 and was a Service of Remembrance, complete with war pictures, music, interviews with some World War II Veterans as well as some photos from different parts of Canada. The second is the Annual Christmas Variety Show, slated for November 30, December 1 and 2. Beginning in 2018, the Silvertones will visit several local seniors’ retirement homes with a series of sing-outs. The schedule is shown below.
