SING! OUT! LOUD! Vancouver

WHAT IS SING! OUT! LOUD!?

 

The vision…

  • Community singing for PERSONAL CONNECTION!
  • Community singing for CHARITY! Syrian Refugee Project, CMHA BC, Harvest Project

 

The comedic musical duo Sandi Melody and Jeremy Vallance met at The Ubuntu Choir Leadership Training Program in Victoria in October 2014.  Jeremy was then the music director of a 170 voice community choir in Winnipeg  and Melody, a long time performer,  vocal educator, and owner of North Shore’s Harmony House Music School since 1993.   

“Life became surreal when we met. We both felt a calling, like we were brought together to do this work.”

Vallance promptly moved to Vancouver the following December so that the couple could start their new (ad) venture:

SING! OUT! LOUD! Vancouver

COMEDY, SKILL BUILDING, & MUSICAL EDUCATION are the corner stones to Melody & Vallance’s success.
Singing Events include warm ups and “how to sing better” tips as well as social breaks to foster new friendships.

Events ranging from intimate family parties to large corporate gatherings unfold like a theme party:

  • You get lyric sheets at the door
  • Sandi and Jeremy team teach the vocal arrangements taking turns leading and accompanying the songs on guitar, drums, ukulele or piano. (Sometimes they even bring instruments for you to try! As educators they are always looking for those “teachable moments” to help you get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself to experience music in new ways, that both deepen your experience and expand on the FUN!)
  • Everyone has a ball and goes home feeling great!

 

What is the Ubuntu Choir Network?

We are a growing community of choirs who believe that the joy of singing is a universal birthright, and that together, regardless of musical background, we can help improve the world by joining voices in song. ubuntuchoirs.net

“I am, because you are. I need you to be you so that I can be me. A choir is a choir only because its different parts work together harmoniously. Yes, a person truly is a person only through other persons. God bless you in your noble endeavour.”

— Archbishop Desmond Tutu, regarding the Ubuntu Choirs Network
