Update: due to COVID 19, in person practices and performances for the Local Vocals have been postponed until further notice. Choir Director Mary Bella will be hosting online musical gatherings, via a live video group streaming application, to keep choristers singing together while from home.
Local Vocals is Mimico Children’s Choir’s FUN-draising community choir, and this session we are inviting all interested men in the community! It’s a sessional (usually 6-week) pop-up group that is fun, social and ever so musical! Local Vocals perform in the Children’s Choir’s main concerts. New members of all abilities are welcome for every session – no audition and no experience required. Fun, varied and often familiar repertoire is chosen in advance of each session, and practice tracks are usually made available for review at home between rehearsals.
Date: Tuesday’s starting March 31 – May 6
Time: 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Location: Mimico Baptist Church, 80 Hillside Ave.
Local Vocals will perform in concert with the Mimico Children’s Choir this May!
