(Picture: C Notes June 2014)
This singing group is made up of a very small, select group of female singers (3 to 6 singers) who are interested in more of a musical challenge. No matter how small the group, the C Notes continue to work on songs in two, three and sometimes four-part harmony.
The members of this group are dedicated to learning their harmony parts while still having fun during practices. We work on a variety of styles of music including, but not limited to, classic pop/rock (The Beatles, The Everly Brothers, Linda Ronstadt), folk songs, foreign language folk songs, contemporary pop/rock and the occasional Broadway show tune.
New members are welcome to join in January and September of each year.
The C Notes meet on Tuesday evenings (6:30 to 8:30 p.m.) in the Oakridge/Langara area of Vancouver.
We meet every Tuesday from January to June and then from September to December. We break for the summer to re-charge. :-)

“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.”
