Glen­garry cham­ber choir in the works

The Glengarry News - - Straight Talk -

Can you sing? If so, Heather MacIn­tosh wants you to au­di­tion for the Glen­garry Cham­ber Choir she hopes to form this fall.

Con­tact her at heather­ma­c­in­[email protected] or at 613-347-2794 if you are in­ter­ested in the join­ing the group that would be­gin re­hearsals in Septem­ber and stage its first con­cert in Jan­uary.

“Choirs are a lot of fun,” says the psy­chol­o­gist who lives in North Lan­caster. “It’s re­ally cool,” she adds.

Au­di­tions are open to any­one over the age of 16. But there is a caveat. “This is not for be­gin­ners,” says Ms. MacIn­tosh, while stress­ing that “au­di­tions will not be terrifying.”

The en­sem­ble will sing a mix of con­tem­po­rary pieces, both a capella and to pi­ano ac­com­pa­ni­ment, us­ing “legally bought” mu­sic.

The new group will fill a void, ob­serves the direc­tor. “There is no Glen­garry County com­mu­nity choir.”
