New members are joining every term and have nothing but good things to say!
This fun co-ed community choir, also known as The Be Natural Singers, is for adult singers of all levels - no audition required. Many members of this group have been singing with Allison for a number of years and continue to be dedicated to the group.
The goals of this group are to learn proper singing technique, to learn how to sing a bit of harmony, to learn how to blend voices with other singers and, most importantly, TO HAVE FUN!
This choir sings primarily Broadway show tunes with a few classic pop/rock songs thrown in for variety. Our practices are lighthearted and we always round out the term with a fun-filled recital and reception for choir members, family and friends.
New members are always welcome to join the group in January and September.
The Broadway Choir meets on Monday evenings (6:30 to 8:30 p.m.) on West 12th Avenue, near Granville Street in Vancouver.
We meet every Monday from January to June and then from September to December. We don't have practices on long weekends and we break for the summer to re-charge. :-)

“Allison creates an environment in which it is truly fun to sing, and she encourages her singers to strive for excellence. She provides gentle guidance to improve various aspects of singing . ..” (singing student for 7 years)
“Her lively, intelligent teaching style allowed me to discover talents within myself that had been lying dormant for years. . . . Allison has consistently demonstrated a sense of passion when leading our class . . she encourages each member with an empathetic teaching style that allows us as individuals to develop at our own rate.”

“I first met Allison in January of 2005 when I joined a night school course offered to all levels of singers, including beginners. The group was made up of participants of varying degrees of singing experience. Within just a few weeks, Allison was able to create a well blended group of voices . . . With well blended voices we confidently put on a mini recital at the end of our course.”
