Always wanted to sing with an orchestra? Riversongs Festival Choir was created just for that – and we love doing it. We don't rehearse all year, but 8 weeks before a concert we get to work.  Come and meet our lovely conductor, Catherine Maguire, and learn to sing. No experience necessary. We will help you - that's our job. Catherine will be joined by Jeff Wiseman, tenor, who will lead a special sectional for men and choral singing.

Events held at Canadore College, 1 College Drive, Parry Sound

3:00 pm - 4:00 pm || Emily Says

 

Individual Lessons with Emily Sun.  Emily is a fabulous violinist and teacher, and Concert Mistress of the orchestra. She uses Alexander Technique to help her teach and make you relax while you play for optimum ease of movement.  And the little ones adore her. Book your lessons with her NOW as her time is limited. All styles and types of performers coached.
