Local Vocals – MCC’s community choir – starting again in October!


Heads up, community singers of all abilities!

LOCAL VOCALS – MCC’s pop-up community fundraiser choir – is starting up again on (REVISED) TUESDAY OCTOBER 24th @ 7:15pm, for 6 Tuesdays, culminating in a Christmas Concert with Mimico Children’s Choir on Sunday, December 10 at 3pm.

Cost is only $60 for the whole 6 weeks + concert. (Less than fitness class! And just as energizing!)

There will not be rehearsal on Halloween (Oct 31).

This began as a women’s group, but if we have enough men interested, we will include an SATB (Soprano-Alto-Tenor-Bass) number or two and rehearse them with the men at specific times. Membership for men (if there are enough) will be cheaper due to the reduced involvement – TBD.

Please indicate your interest in joining LOCAL VOCALS Fall 2017 using THIS FORM, so we can be ready with music scores for you at the first rehearsal, and keep in touch with you via email. (If you have already submitted the form, then you don’t have to submit it again).


Payments should be made by cash or cheque to Mimico Children’s Choir, handed in at the first rehearsal.

We want to be as inclusive as possible Рas such, allowance will be made for those who find the fee difficult to manage.  If this is you, please hand in a note and pay what you can.

If you’re not sure but would like to check it out – please attend the first rehearsal with no obligation, and then decide!

Don’t forget to share and invite all your friends to join us – it’s going to be AWESOME! All abilities, ages 14 and up are invited.

See you Tuesday October 24 @ 7:15pm for the first rehearsal, at Mimico Baptist Church.

Oh and here’s a little taste from our first session, just to get you in the mood!

Introducing Mom Choir – a Mimico Children’s Choir fundraising initiative

Introducing MOM CHOIR!

This is a fundraising idea we’ve cooked up, and it’s going to be so much fun!

We’re gathering a group of Moms (and other women in our community who might be interested!) as a “pick up” short-term choir. We’ll be preparing 3-4 fun selections over the next few weeks leading up to the Spring concert, with Mary Bella, former leader of the Senior Division, voluntarily directing.

Then we’ll perform some or all of them at the Spring Concert on Sunday, May 28 for our adoring fan-families!

Rehearsals will be Tuesday evenings 7 – 8pm, starting April 11 for 6 to 8 weeks.
We may drop a week or two if things are looking good musically, and/or lots of people can’t make a week. Please assume for now that rehearsal is every Tuesday from April 11 – May 23.

Location TBA in the Mimico area.

Cost to join is $60 per person. Payments can be made in cash or cheque (payable to Mimico Childrens Choir) and given to Judy in an envelope clearly marked with your name and MOM CHOIR.

Please confirm your interest via reply email to mimicochildrenschoir by next Thursday March 30, and plan to pay in cash at the first rehearsal. When you reply please also indicate if you will be absent for any rehearsals.

Feel free to forward this on to other women in the community you think might be interested!

A minimum of 8 participants will be required to proceed with Mom Choir.

Looking forward to it!
