Spring Choir Concert 2012 at Mulgrave School in West Vancouver is fast approaching

Two more sleeps until Higher Ground Women’s Choir concert at Mulgrave School (West Vancouver). We had our dress rehearsal this afternoon, and it went so well. We have some surprises for you, and lots of great music–pushing the limits again just for the fun of it! Tickets are at the door for $15–you won’t be disappointed and we’d love to see you there!
Tuesday May 8 at 7:30.

We came. We conquered.

Higher Ground had a great weekend in Powell River at the Vocal Summit XVII Festival.  Vocal Summit was started nearly 20 years ago by educator and director Peter Taylor, with a focus on education and musical growth. This non-competitive festival show-cases concert and jazz community choirs from elementary to university levels and beyond!

Higher Ground was excited to have our recorded adjudication done by Vijay Singh – a well-known composer, teacher and clinician.  Our clinic was with the fantastic Scott Leithead –the founder of TIME and Kokopelli Choir Associations. He gave us some great ideas for the music in our upcoming spring concert at Mulgrave School in May.

We were one of two groups out of the competition asked to sing again at the evening concert along with the group, Groove for Thought.  Our director, Janet Warren, was presented with the Frank DeMiero Award – lovely surprise. A growth experience for all involved! Our soloists, Karen, Jenny, Deb, and Gina did super jobs.  You ladies made us proud!!!  A big thanks to Sharon Minemoto our accompanist and our guest drummer, Ed Trovato.
