The two workshops which were given this fall were a great success. Dr. Jessica McCormack talked about keeping voices healthy and she gave some valuable information that people could take away and put into practise.
Rose Marie Bernaquez gave a new twist to a much-discussed topic- vocal technique. She made many new friends and was so popular that she returned the following Saturday for another session.
Thank you to Jessica and Rose Marie for sharing your knowledge and expertise with us.

A King’s Christmas: A feast of seasonal song and story: The Chapel Choir of the University of King’s College (Halifax) under the direction of Paul Halley will present their annual King’s Christmas concert at Trinity Church (115 Charlotte St., Saint John) on Friday, December 13, 7:30 pm. Described as “annual magic” by Nova Scotia’s Chronicle Heraldnewspaper, the concert will feature a beautiful blend of carols, from the mediaeval to the modern, interspersed with readings for the season. Ken Schwartz, artistic director of the award-winning Two Planks and A Passion Theatre Company, is joining the choir as narrator for its five performances this Christmas season. Halley and the King’s College Chapel Choir have been holding Christmas concerts since 2008, and performances typically sell out in advance in Halifax. This is the first year the choir is touring its popular concert, now an annual tradition for many, outside of Nova Scotia. Tickets for the Saint John concert are $25 in advance ($20 for students); $30 at the door, and available online at www.kingschapelchoir.eventbrite.ca, from the Trinity Parish Office in Saint John, tel 506.693.8558, or at the door.
