Come and Sing!

Choirs directed by Linda

Do you love to sing?

There is so much that makes choral singing compelling –

  • circle
    The variety of sounds – upbeat, mellow
  • circle
    The styles – folk, pop, show tunes, spirituals, ethnic...
  • circle
    How it touches your heart

    Supportive, friendly people
  • circle
    Making harmonies you could never make on your own

    It’s inspiring

I sat next to Becky who a big voice. She followed my lead and belted out the parts. Then in high school I sang in the ‘elite” concert choir of about 30 kids. We sang sophisticated in four parts.

I accompanied lots of choirs and musicals, too. That was my world. Now I am the music director for several choirs. Come out and sing!


Lakefield Singers

3 Alarm Choir

An occasional “mob-sing” in 3-part harmony, modeled after Toronto's Choir Choir Choir. My partner Luke and I teach one pop tune per night, all learned by ear on the spot. Everyone gets the song lyrics, and no sheet music. We learn the song in about 90 minutes, take a break, then video the “finished” product. Prerequisite: a good sense of FUN!

Resonance

The choir of the Unitarian Fellowship of Peterborough Resonance sings for Sunday morning service, one Sunday per month. The music ranges from bouncy to meditative to inspiring. It always has a spiritual connection, but as with all things Unitarian-Universalist, it is not sectarian. It’s an SATB choir that rehearses weekly. Prerequisites: be able to carry a tune and enjoy camaraderie.
