Higher Ground is a dynamic group of singers who enjoy choral music from the past eight centuries. Ranging in age from eighteen to… much older, these singers are post-secondary students, teachers, business people, technology experts, artists, healthcare workers, mothers, grandmothers–who all share a love of singing.
We are a North Shore-based women’s ensemble who practice once a week for 10-12 weeks. We have two sessions a year. The first term enables us to welcome new members, go on our yearly retreat, polish some new repertoire, and work on our sound. The second session in the spring enables us to take our favorite repertoire from the fall, and many new songs, to produce a full-scale show complete with costumes, choreography and staging.
We combine a desire to sing repertoire from all genres with a strong social connection through the music. We celebrate each others joys (new family members, upcoming marriages, new jobs) and support each other through life’s trials. The music allows us to soar. We value each other and the opportunity to work together to create beautiful music.
