Sage Sound Singers - Baritone

Covid-19 Update

Hello Everybody,

It’s our hope that you are faring well during these uncertain times. We are sorry to announce that Sage Sound Singers spring practice repertoire has been canceled. To help protect the health of our members and community, we made the decision on March 14th, 2020 to suspend practices until further notice. We know it was the right choice to make. Our Fall plans, (so far) have not been affected. Our goal is to have a Christmas Concert sometime in December 2020.  Hopefully Covid-19 will be under control by then. We’ll hopefully start our Fall practice in early September.

Our hearts go out to everybody who has been affected in any way by this pandemic. We also send our heartfelt condolences to our singing brothers and sisters at the Skagit Valley Chorale in Mount Vernon, Washington.

Take care everyone and do your best to help stop this scourge.

THANK YOU! Tribute to the Music of Fiddler on the Roof. A smashing SUCCESS!

We sang to full houses both performances.  Thank you, thank you, thank you to YOU our audience!

On the horizon:

FALL 2020 – CHRISTMAS CONCERT!    Get ready for a BIG one.  We are looking forward to celebrating the Christmas Season with a Christmas Concert you will NOT want to miss!  Stay tuned for more details which we will have sometime during Summer 2020.

Sage Sound Singers Return For An Exciting Fall Season!

After a six month hiatus, Michelle Reid, President and Music Director of Twisted Desert Music is bringing the Sage Sound Singers back for an exciting Fall 2019 musical performance. We will be coming back with almost all of our original singers plus a few new ones! Everybody has had a good rest over the last six months and are ready to entertain Ashcroft and area once again. This time we will be doing something a little bit different by presenting the choral version of the great play and film, Fiddler on the Roof. This isn’t the actual play, but it is all of the ensemble music, solos, duets, trios and quartets from the play- in short, the entire musical score without the acting – all in one exciting evening!  Our talented accompanist, Dimiter Terziev will be be joining us once again and will provide the piano accompaniment for this production. Work has already begun on purchasing and assembling the musical score. In mid July the solos and duets will start familiarising themselves with the music with some practices here and there. Early September is when the official rehearsals begin.
The performance will be sometime in November 2019 at the Ashcroft HUB.
Look for more information in the coming weeks here, or on our FaceBook page!

 

Sage Sound Singers Disband

After almost nine years of providing quality choral music to Ashcroft and area residents, Sage Sound Singers is disbanding.
Their last concert was at Choral Rhapsody in Kamloops where they sang three of their best songs from the “Somewhere In My Memories” Christmas Concert (December 2018).
While Sage Sound Singers are no more, Twisted Desert Music Society is alive and well, so it’s possible that in the future choral singing will return to Ashcroft and area.

We would like to thank the choir members, accompanists and conductors who through the years made it all possible.  Your hard work and dedication made Sage Sound Singers Community Choir a fine choral group.

We also would like to thank Second Time Around, Teck Highland Valley Copper and others for their generous financial support through the years.

And finally, we’d like to thank Michelle Reid for her vision and persistence in making Sage Sound Singers the best we could be.

Sage Sound Singers will always be “Somewhere In Our Memories”
