Children’s choir prepares for holiday performances

Members of the Summerland children’s Choir are already working on songs for the holidays.

Members of the Summerland children’s Choir are already working on songs for the holidays.

The choir will perform at the Summerland Festival of Lights later this month, when they will join music students from Summerland Montessori School.

They will also perform at the Kettle Valley Steam Railway’s Christmas train on Dec. 10, and have also been invited to perform when Peachland has its light-up celebrations.

Linnea Good, director of the choir, said there are 13 children in total this year, including some young singers.

“There’s a lot of interest among five-year-olds,” she said. The choir is for children between the ages of five and 11.

Good said the older children are working on more complex words and melodies in their songs.

“Ït’s so exciting to work with children who are trying to see what they’re able to do,”she said.

The choir presents an opportunity for children to sing together.

“It’s the first and best place to learn music,” Good said of singing together. “There are not enough opportunities to just sing.

Because of the holiday performances, new children are not being accepted into the choir at this time. However, Good said the next season of the children’s choir, which begins in January, will provide opportunities for new voices to join in song.
