On March 24th, the Training Choice, the Apprentice Choir and the Girls Choir all learned from one another at a workshop at Trinity United Church. Each choir regularly has workshops alone, or with one other choir, but rarely does this happen with all three together. During the workshop, we rehearsed our repertoire, learned new songs and clapping games and also did some team-buiding exercises together. “My favourite activity at the workshop was singing with all the three choirs together because the sound of so many voices is beautiful,” said Nia, a member of the Apprentice Choir.
According to Jackie, who conducts the other two choirs and is Cantiamo’s Founding Artistic Director, “the best parts about a workshop like this are the sense of community, team buliding and development of leadership skills which as a result allow for oppurtunity for self-discovery and development of self confidence. And of course, the singing is always heavenly!”
