Pen Singers looking for altos

Peninsula Singers need more altos.

The Peninsula Singers are on the hunt — for more singers.

The group, which has been delighting audiences on the Saanich Peninsula and beyond for over three decades, is in need of new singers — altos to be precise.

“Usually choirs have more altos than sopranos, but for some reason we have the opposite problem,” explained choir member Virginia Rouslin.

“Altos are the backbone of any choir.

“We have to help out those sopranos by singing elaborate harmony while they get to sail along singing the melody,” she laughed.

Rouslin added the group is looking to boost its alto roster before rehearsals start for their Christmas concert series in September.

Altos with choral experience who can read music and who are keen to get involved with the Peninsula Singers are urged to contact the choir by email at info@peninsulasingers.ca (the group also has room for more tenors as well).
