Just found this community via [site community profile] dw_community_promo. What a neat idea! I thought I should introduce myself.

My name is Liz. I sing S1 with Chorus Niagara (yes, we're the ones who did the now-infamous "Hallelujah Flash Mob", and yes, I'm in it, although you mostly just see the back of me!):

We're on summer hiatus at the moment, but will be starting a new season again in September. Here's our website: Chorus Niagara where you can see our upcoming repertoire and learn more about us and our wonderful Artistic Director, Robert Cooper.

This will be our 50th season, so we're ending it with a bang - the Verdi Requiem. For me it's full circle - when I joined in January 2001, this was the first concert I performed in. Our soloist was Measha Brueggergosman (this was just before her career took off!).

We're thrilled and excited that construction of the St. Catharines Performing Arts Centre is now underway! Somewhere between fall 2014 and spring 2015, we will at last have a "home base" performance space that is acoustically built to suit our needs. It will be a treat for our members not to have to lug risers in and out of storage and jam ourselves into churches that were never meant to house 100 choristers plus a full orchestra.

We are currently accepting new members (and especially male voices), so if you live in the Golden Horseshoe or Western New York (yes, we have some U.S. members!) and you're interested, or you know someone else who might be, send me a PM and I can put you in touch with our auditions coordinator.

Looking forward to meeting new friends here!
