Shout Sister! Northumberland is Welcoming New Members

Abby Zotz directs a chapter of Georgette Fry's women's community choir in Northumberland on Wednesday evenings. Abby is an accomplished singer/songwriter who also directs chapters of Shout Sister in Durham and Toronto.

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 and a touch of country and blues. We learn from recorded tracks so we require no reading of music. Our method is fun and fresh and we are a warm and welcoming community.

You are welcome to attend at anytime with no obligation.

Wednesday evenings from 7-9 pm , Trinity United Church, 284 Division St., Cobourg

If you are interested please email: members@shoutsisterchoir.ca

Specify Northumberland in the subject line of your email.
