Shout Sister! takes an unorthodox approach to choral singing. We do not audition and we sing a fun variety of music from pop and Motown, to folk, to a touch of country and blues.
We learn from recorded music tracks so we require no reading of music. Our method is fresh and fun and we are a warm and welcoming community.
The act of singing with others is both powerful and joyful and, while our choir fills the need for those who have never sung with others, experienced singers will find the relaxed atmosphere and alternative repertoire a refreshing change.
The first choir was started by Georgette Fry in Kingston, Ontario in 2002, and Brockville and Picton were added in 2006. Shout Sister Choir also has chapters in Belleville and London. Maestra Georgette chooses and arranges all the music.
You are welcome to attend a practice with no obligation and new members are welcome at any time. Please note we are scent-free choirs.
Please look under “Choir Locations” to see where and when these choirs meet. If you are more comfortable singing from home, we have a country-wide Zoom Shout Sister! Choir on Monday evenings. For more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
As part of its mandate, Shout Sister! also seeks to employ, as directors, women who struggle to earn a living as career musicians, women whose enthusiasm for keeping the arts alive can’t help but reach and inspire those who are eager to share the same goals. If you fit that description and are interested in directing a Shout Sister! choir, please contact us at: email@example.com.
