Community Announcement: For immediate release
September 1, 2021
SingYourJoy Young Adult Chorus is back this fall after a full ‘COVID season’ of Zoom singing and a hugely successful outdoor summer series. “We’re going indoors (masked to start) and are super stoked to hear our voices resonating together again”, says co-founder Gordon Miller. “We don’t want to say ‘we’re back’, because we never really went away.”
“Last year we connected with our singers online and continued to educate and promote choral music and vocal technique … and we did some great video productions that worked for the situation in which we found ourselves vis-à-vis the pandemic. This year we will be easing back into in-person rehearsals. We expect quite an emotional reunion. Joining your voice with others is an intimate, personal experience that touches the heart.”
Throughout late June and July SingYourJoy hosted their first ever outdoor summer season – masked and physically distanced. The singers showed up in force to create some great summer sounds.
This fall – starting mid-September – they will welcome dozens of newcomers to the SingYourJoy family of choirs as students attend fall classes at UVic and Camosun, businesses reopen to rehire young workers, and arts and culture reemerges. And that’s what SingYourJoy Young Adult Chorus does so well; welcoming a diverse group of young adults into an inclusive safe space for making friends and growing community.
Created in 2011, SingYourJoy is a non-auditioned chorus of people ages 16-29. The chorus offers two in-person rehearsal locations: Oak Bay United (1355 Mitchell Street in Victoria) and Redeemer Lutheran (3024 Jacklin Road in Langford). There are no fees nor auditions, just a commitment to be part of this welcoming community.
