Do you love to sing? Love music from a variety of traditions and eras? Vocal Latitudes is a non-auditioned world music community choir. We sing for two terms a year, September–December and January–May; each term closing with a public concert.
If you want to experience the benefits of singing in a welcoming vocal community, Vocal Latitudes may be the choir for you. Vocal Latitudes meets Tuesday evenings at 7:30 PM from September to May in a convenient central location. Repertoire includes jazz, gospel, African, Canadian, Renaissance, pop, original and contemporary.
You do not need to be able to read music if you wish to join. It is important that you love to sing and can carry a tune! Please be aware that we are quite ambitious and our repertoire can be quite challenging, but you can also count on great supports to help you learn your parts and become a better singer!
If you are interested in singing with us, feel free to come and visit us on Tuesday night or use the contact us button on this page and send us an email.
