The Canadian Chamber Choir, during their visit to The Hall in March, will conduct a choral workshop exclusively for the Parrsboro Citizens' Choir.   In the words of Beth Peterkin, current Chair of the CCC and the individual responsible for making this amazing opportunity available:  True to their mandate of community outreach through singing, the CCC will be conducting a workshop exclusively for our choir. I have observed many workshops on this current CCC tour, and they have worked with community choirs, grade 1 and 2 kids, university master classes and concert choirs and everything in between. We will learn so much from them, and to top it all off, they are a terrific bunch of people who love music, and love to share their talents and expertise.

Note that this workshop is different from others that we have run, because it is a one-on-one residency where the CCC workshops a piece of music that the local choir is currently working on. Therefore, we cannot open it up to other people to join us on that day.
