Seniors sing along

If you love to sing and enjoy good company, the Invermere Seniors' Singing group may just be the thing for you.

If you love to sing and enjoy good company, the Invermere Seniors’ Singing group may just be the thing for you.

Started in 1994, the group has been performing with a number of different members over the years. The group took a bit of a hiatus in 2005 following the death of a long-standing member and organizer, but began anew in 2008 and has been performing at the Columbia House every month ever since.

“They’re so enthusiastic, and they love to sing,” group member Lila Fodchuk said.

The group performs a wide range of music, from carols during the holiday season to their more general inspirational music, with a mix of old and new tunes. They perform usually on the last Tuesday of every month, although that can change, and practice together every Monday morning at the Columbia Valley Gardens.

Currently, the about 15-strong group is looking for some more members, especially male voices, as they currently only have one male singer.

If you’d like to join, or would just like some more information about the group, please call Mary Smith at 250-342-9388, or Lila Fodchuk at 250-342-9636.
