Centre Wellington Singers will start preparation for 2009-10 season on Sept. 14

Members of the Centre Wellington Singers will soon be tuning up for the 2009-10 season with their first prac­tice on Sept. 14 at Heritage River Retirement Residence in Elora.

The choir was formed about 13 years ago by Carol Mc­Fadden as the fulfillment of her dream to have an adult choir of mixed voices in the Fergus and Elora community.

Under the direction of Louise Elder, accompanied by Betty Weinstein on piano, the choir has grown over the years from 25 men and women to more than 60.

The extensive rep­ertoire of the choir includes a wide variety of music including folk, gospel and traditional.

During the fall session, the Centre Wellington Singers will focus primarily on Christmas music for their concert on Nov. 29.

That show will feature special guests.

The choir will also extend their “spirit in song” into the community with performances at several retirement and nurs­ing homes before beginning rehearsals in January for the annual spring concert.

Anyone who loves to sing and would like to participate can come to Heritage River Retirement Residence (in the basement dining room en­trance)  in Elora on at 6:30pm for registration and social time.

Rehearsal starts promptly at 7:15pm.
