Prepare to Be Awesome!
With Lynn Valley Voices, singers have unique opportunites for small and large performances, with concerts at both Lynn Valley United Church and in the wider community. In an informal, non-stress audition, singers are assessed to help determine the section best-suited to his/her range and skills. LVV also has opportunities to learn new skills through weekly practice arcs and interactions with professional musicians at retreats and/or workshops.
Lynn Valley Voices is a safe space to discover your voice while engaging in practice, community and fellowship.
Lynn Valley Voices is a Spiritual Practice
For those who want and like to sing it is about finding yourt voice, learning how to use that voice as it fits into a community of singers, and developing a regular practice. This process allows you to learn something new and to find your place on the journey. Because singing also comes from a spiritual place within us, you create a practice through choir rehearsals. In these rehearsals you develop a weekly "Practice" that begins with vocal warm-ups & exercises, in addition to some body stretches that center & ground you (getting ready). In the main part of rehearsals you construct new pieces (learning something new) and with home practice you learn to deepen the skills learnt each week (Practice Arc).
The Lynn Valley Voices Experience
Choir practice is part of the process to build your confidence and grow your voice & musical skills. You reach this goal through regular rehearsal experiences & performances. With regular small & large concert opportunities, you develop more performance and communications skills in a supportive and encouraging environment. The Choir experience also helps with the goal of having accomplished pieces to share with audiences. Members notice that performances are better than they expect because of the structured practice arcs for both rehearsals and performances. Singin and communication music helps to bring the singers and the audience joy & inspiration.
