Love music from a variety of traditions and eras? Vocal Latitudes is a non-auditioned world music community choir. We sing for two terms a year, September–December and January–May; each term closing with a public concert. Please visit us at vocalatitudes.org to learn more and register. You are also invited to join us for an open rehearsal on September 13, 2022 to experience our choir before deciding to register! Cost Fees for each term are $150 per member, or $250 for both terms if paid up front. For those members who would like to participate but find the membership fee a problem, please contact our membership team at firstname.lastname@example.org for reduced payment options (or select this option on the registration form). We do not want cost to prevent you from joining us this term. Who can Join Membership is open to adult Albertans who are interested in participating fully in singing with a committed group of choristers. We are hoping to have a group of 30-40 people join us for the fall session. If you want to experience the benefits of singing in a welcoming vocal community, Vocal Latitudes may be the choir for you. Vocal Latitudes meets Tuesday evenings at 7:30pm from September to May at the Calgary Unitarians (1703, 1st St. NW) Repertoire includes jazz, gospel, African, Canadian, renaissance, pop, original and contemporary. You do not need to be able to read music if you wish to join. It is important that you love to sing and can carry a tune! Please be aware that we are quite ambitious and our repertoire can be quite challenging, but you can also count on great supports to help you learn your parts and become a better singer! Our director, Frank Rackow has been trained in music at Concordia and McGill universities in Montreal. As a woodwind player, he has performed at clubs and festivals across the country. In addition, he has acted as music director for theatre productions in Ottawa, Toronto and Hamilton. We are planning an exciting season for next fall and winter/spring. The choir will be back to rehearsing in person and giving a full range of performances, including our own concerts as well as guest appearances in the ProArts at Noon series and other possibilities. We will also continue to offer the option of participating remotely via Zoom. Expect a wide range of song and choral works for our fall session. The artistic advisory committee has been hard at work selecting repertoire. And for the winter/spring session, we will put a special emphasis on Canadian songwriters and choral composers.
