UPDATE. September, 2021: Thanks to Britannia Community Centre, we are now practicing from 10:30 to 12:30 on Sunday mornings at the Britannia šxʷqʷeləwən Carving Pavilion, behind the parking lot. To find it, walk north on Commercial Drive to the alley just before Venables and turn left (west). Half a block in, you’ll see the parking lot, and then the roof of the Pavilion.
The Carving Pavilion is open-air (see Tall Trees, Warm Fire below that we sang at our first practice), and will be our home at least until the new year. The expectation is that we’ll all be double-vaccinated, but as long as we’re basically outside masks can be optional. Come with warm clothes including hats and mitts once fall begins in earnest — it’s chilly. Chairs are provided.
As of January, 2022 we will move to the Learning Resource Centre at Britannia (below the library) if it’s too cold to stay in the Carving Pavilion. We’ll be masked while singing inside.
If you’d like to join us instead on Zoom on Sunday mornings, and/or be added to the most up-to-date information regarding practices and other Solidarity Notes events, get in touch with us via the “contact us” tab on the website and we’ll add you to our mailing list.
Rehearsal dates for November, 2021 through March 27, 2022 are three Sundays a month from, 10:30am to 12:30pm. Here are the current Sundays we will not be rehearsing:
- Sunday November 28

(check the website to confirm that we’ll be rehearsing on the 19th)
- Sunday January 30th, 2022
- Sunday February 20, 2022 (Family Day long weekend)
- Sunday March 27, 2022
Thanks to the Britannia Community Services Centre which is a sponsor of the choir and provides us with free rehearsal space.
