LES MS. IS GOING TO CARNEGIE HALL!!!!!!

We are thrilled to announced that Les Ms. Choir has been invited to join other choirs from around the world to sing at Carnegie Hall on March 17th, 2019 in conjunction with International Women's Day.  We have also been invited to participate in a residency and clinic under the baton of Dr. Nancy Menk!  The choir is ecstatic, and humbled to be selected, and most grateful for the recognition of the hard work of Dr. Valerie Long, whose energy, dedication and vision have brought us to this point.  Please see the Press Release below for further information.  And if you would like to see how we reacted when we heard, check out the video!

Invitation

Belles, Blues and Boogie was a Roaring Success

What a fabulous time we had this past weekend, at Masonic Theatre.  We sang and danced our heart out and you, our audience, were completely engaged.  Thank you to the Lori Cooper Band for their super hot licks.  And what an opportunity this was, to share our wonderful news about our invitation to New York and Carnegie Hall.  Give a listen to the incomparable Kara Noftle!

You Have Done It Again!

Thank you so much for all the support you showed in making Sing for Care 2017 a success.  We were thrilled to raise $12,758 at the Sunday evening concert.  Adding some donations that came in later we were able to write a cheque to the Bliss Foundation for over $13,000, bringing us to within striking distance of $150,000 over the years that we have been holding this benefit.

We are grateful to you, our wonderful audience, and to Holy Heart Alumnae Choir, Let's Make a Choir 2017, and the Atlantic BoyChoir for being part of the event this year.
