Hello,
Welcome to the Victoria Good News Choir space.
I've often been asked if The Victoria Good News Choir is a 'gospel' choir. I respond No!
We are a NON-AUDITION community choir that rehearses from 7:30 until 9 PM on Tuesday evening at Cordova Bay United Church, 813 Claremont Avenue. We sing music from the 16th century to funk.
I started this choir because I wanted to provide a place where everyone would be welcome to sing... for three months. We've now been singing for thirteen years.
This choir is now my life's work. There is no retirement in sight.
I thought I wanted to have a choir in order to make music with and for people who expressed an interest in singing and especially those who'd been discouraged. What I know today is that those who want to sing want to sing for reasons that may have little to do with singing.
My job is to be prepared to serve you with all my heart.
This choir, like every relationship, is changing. Change is going to happen to each of us no matter what we do and sometimes because of what we do.
Somehow the challenges of life seem manageable when there is a focus. No matter how unusual that may seem, it is true. I choose to make every day one in which I move forward.
Ultimately The Victoria Good News Choir is a choir growing into its mission of 'community'.
We are female and male singers who come from many walks of life. We are a community in that we agree on some things.
We sing, work and play together. We invest in our communities through monthly outreach at area hospitals, retirement and care facilities. We tithe. We continue to make ourselves available to schools of all kinds for fundraising events.
We are an ever changing entity that attempts to respond to each other, the adventure of remaining relevant, alive, engaged the world in which each of us lives.
We are The Victoria Good News Choir .
My belief is that your voice has a right to be heard.
Come. Join us.

See you soon,
Louise
