Singing is powerful and uplifting. Singing together teaches us how to listen to each other and singing in harmony has a ripple effect in the community and beyond. Whether you are an experienced singer, or have always wished you could sing, you are welcome to sing with our non-audition community choir. No need to read music.

We sing songs of spirit from around the world; step by step, call and response, in the oral tradition. These will include African freedom songs, Latin chants, songs from the African-American tradition, as well as contemporary songs. All voices are welcome!

We are meeting monthly in Van Buren Hall in Kinderhook.

in Nanaimo and Lantzville, BC, Canada
directed by Shirley Whitelaw and Cyndi Doell | 250-729-6135

Our mission is to increase joy and harmony in our community by creating the opportunity for everyone to sing regardless of ability.

We believe that singing is our natural human birthright. Humans were meant to sing, and we founded EveryBodySings! singing circles in 2001 to provide a place for anyone to join an energetic, enthusiastic group of ordinary people who sing for the pure joy of singing. We truly believe that everyone can sing, given the right encouragement and atmosphere for vocal development. We both come from singing families where singing was a natural, accepted and joyful form of expression. We love to encourage and inspire others to discover and/or reclaim their voice, to express their own creativity, and to experience the transformational power of singing.

We have taken and offered singing workshops with Brian Tate, Tony Backhouse, Siobhan Robinsong, Denis Donnelly, Eric Dozier, Edwin Coppard and others.

We have two EveryBodySings! groups, one in Lantzville on Tuesday evenings 7–9pm and one in downtown Nanaimo, Thursday mornings, from 10am–noon.
