The GWSA Silvertones Choir is currently at capacity. Please call Doreen to join a waiting list for membership.
This mixed choir of 55 men and women performs throughout the year. From September to December we practice every Friday afternoon and we sing at local Christmas events. 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 2018/19 season we welcome back our Director, Ann Sneyd, an accomplished musician and choral director. We are happy to welcome back our popular pianist, Mary Lynn Woods.
Our program for the 2018-19 season so far has included two very special eventsand a Community Christmas Concert with seven other choirs at Lakeside Community Church on December 7th. The first very special event has been coined “The Day Before” and was a Service of Remembrance, complete with war pictures, a guest speaker, music, three interviews offering different perspectives on wars past and present as well as some beautiful photos from different parts of Canada. This event was held on November 9th in 2018. The second was the Annual Christmas Variety Show (“Home for the Holidays”) which ran on November 29th, 30th and December 1st. Beginning in 2019, the Silvertones will visit several local seniors’ retirement homes with a series of sing-outs. The schedule is shown below.
