Summerside Community Choir celebrates its 25th year
by Sue Gallant
Scientists have recently discovered that when we sing, the saliva in our mouths registers increased levels of proteins and other such healthy stuff. Hence, when we sing, we feel good. So that's why we all like to belt out a tune or two when we're in the bath or shower. Explains a lot doesn't it!
The Director of Summerside Community Choir is in total agreement with those scientific findings. She says she feels good when she sings too, and she says that's one of the reasons she, and members of the forty-strong Summerside Community Choir do it-sing that is. The Choir is currently preparing for its Gala Silver Anniversary Concert, to take place April 27 at the Harbourfront Jubilee Theatre.
"I am so passionate about choral music and they [choir members] are too," Christine Anderson Gallant says. "I think its the energy you get in the whole choral experience; Just from each person, that combined energy as a group. It's so passionate and wonderful and very exciting and very special."
