Choir Invitation     Come and join the GWMC choir and help celebrate our 20th year. New members who like to sing and have fun are needed. We practice every Tuesday morning from 8:30 to 9:30 AM at the ICC  prior to the regular GWMC meeting.   Once a month, starting in Oct. until April, the choir sings, by invitation, at various venues e.g.  St. Joseph’s Hospital and various retirement homes in and around Guelph. These concerts are enjoyed by both the residents and the choir.   You do not need to know how to read music or have had previous choral singing experience.  If you love singing and having fun the choir is the place for you!   Choir rehearsals will start Tuesday Sept. 19, 2017.  So, mark your calendar and we will see you there.
