It’s a new year and the Peninsula Singers are looking for new voices to sing along with them this spring.

“We’re looking for altos to sing with us in our upcoming spring concert series,” explained Peninsula Singer Virginia Rouslin.

The new series, titled The Peninsula Singers Invite You To a Night at the Movies, starts April 26 at the Mary Winspear Centre.

“Altos believe they are the most important singers in any chorus and in addition, they have the most fun,” joked Rouslin.

The Pen Singers have been in existence for more than 30 years and are composed of members from a variety of backgrounds. The Singers are also active in the community, donating their time and efforts to local causes.

“We’re delighted to report that our Christmas concerts raised $4,000 for the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Foundation’s music therapy program and $1,000 for the Sidney Food Bank,” said Rouslin.

Previous experience in choral singing is required to audition for the Singers.
