Children’s choir planned for fall

A Summerland musician will form a choir for children beginning this fall.

A Summerland musician will form a choir for children beginning this fall.

Linnea Good said the proposed choir, for children between the ages of six and 12, is a natural fit for Summerland, since the community has a strong musical tradition.

“I believe in the power of music to transform lives,” she said. “I know so many children who come alive when they’re singing.”

She added that those who are ordinarily shy or introverted often do well when performing their music publicly.

The choir will be an opportunity for children to experience music rather than a choir with performances as its goal.

Good is a singer and songwriter who has performed around the world. The choir represents a greater community-based focus for her.

The choir will begin in September, after school on Wednesdays. Summerland United Church will be the sponsoring locale.

The first module will run from September to December. A second module is planned for January to March.
