EVENTS ON GOING: 

Brackendale choir has been invited to sing at the Annual Artisan Market at thchoir-happinesse Squamish library downtown.   This will be on Saturday, December 2 at 11:00 a.m. We will be singing our two Christmas concert songs as well as some Christmas carols. It will be about 10-15 minutes depending on how many children can come. As this is a Saturday event, it will be up to parents/guardians to provide transportation and supervision.  On November 16, Choir members were given an info sheet to take home for parents to fill out and let me know if they are able to come. (The form is not required for your child to participate…it’s more for me to find out how many children can come.) This may be the opportunity of a lifetime for your child to sing as loud as they want in a library!! I hope they can come and share their musical talents with the community.   Thank you!   From  Ms. Murakami
