EVERYONE DESERVES MUSIC: COME RAISE YOUR VOICE WITH US FOR A DOSE OF COLLECTIVE JOY!

"This is a free, drop-in, non-auditioned weekly community choir.  All voices are invited to join us in song. Together we sing music from gospel, folk, popular, and contemporary traditions. It's informal, fun, playful and profound.

We're a friendly gang of welcoming people who live or work in the area, go to school at SFU or come from around the city to gather here and enjoy the community we build through music.

There are usually 25 to 35 singers each week and always a handful of new singers joining us for the first time. Participants are also welcome to come, drink a cup of tea and just listen.

We sing in the beautiful Sky Room of the PHS Community Services Residences at the Woodward's complex."

This friendly choir began in 2009 at SFU Harbour Centre to prepare for the new Woodward’s campus. It runs most Thursday evenings throughout the year.  Updates can be found on their Facebook page (Woodward's Community Singers).

No experience or auditions required, no cost, no obligation, drop-ins welcomed. Come with a friend or come to make new ones.

The choir would like to acknowledge the generosity of SFU’s Vancity Office of Community Engagement, PHS Community Services Society, Bob Rennie in honour of Jim Green and the contributions from Woodward's Community Singers and their community supporters! Thank you to all for helping to make this project possible.
