the Gettin’ Higher Choir

The Gettin’ Higher Choir welcomes new members at the beginning of each session in September and February.

If you are curious about joining the choir, we encourage you to come during the first two weeks of a session to see how you like it. Each evening in the first two weeks is preceded by a half-hour orientation for new singers interested in learning about the choir. The orientation starts at 7pm.

There is no need to pre-register. Simply show up on one of these introductory evenings to discover what the Gettin’ Higher Choir is all about. We will be able to answer any questions at that time. If you decide to join the choir, you must register by the end of the second week.

Beginning in September 2018, there are three chapters of the choir, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Each night sings the same material. Choose the one night that works best for you. You are also welcome to come to any of the other nights if you miss an evening, if you want extra practice or if you just feel like spending more time singing!

Tuesday and Thursday groups meet at The Church of Truth, 111 Superior Street.

Wednesday group will meet at a location in the West Shore (Langford or Colwood) that will be finalized by mid-July. Please come back for details.

(For those interested in the former Monday group in West Saanich, please contact Denis Donnelly at denis@denisdonnelly.ca about his new choir at the same time and place!)

All groups sing 7:30–9:30pm.

There are two seasons per year, starting in February and September. We host a concert at the end of each season, the proceeds of which go to support local and international causes. Between our Spring and Fall sessions we often host casual drop-in sessions, to which everybody is welcome.
