Have you been thinking of joining a community choir in 2015?

A Nanaimo-based choir is hoping to add more Ladysmith-area singers to its ranks.

The Camerata Singers is described as a fun and energetic community choir for men and women. Camerata sings a wide variety of music, including classical, folk, spiritual and pop.

The choir, which includes several members from Ladysmith, is looking for new members in all voices, especially those who love to sing and have some sight reading ability. Practices are held on Wednesdays from 6-8 p.m. at St. Andrews United Church at 311 Fitzwilliam St. in Nanaimo.

The spring session starts on Wednesday, Jan. 7 with the innovative and talented conductor Leah Hokanson, who is involved in the music scene in Nanaimo and on Gabriola Island, where she lives. For more information about the Camerata Singers, call 250-390-9240 or e-mail cdmaxw@gmail.com.
