The Moose Jaw Community Choir is making its return, after a 19-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The choir is returning to its regular practices starting on Monday, Oct. 18. 

“Well, the choir is a group of people who love to sing in four-part harmony: soprano, alto, tenor, bass. There are no auditions, just people who love to sing choral choir music,” said Director Diane Rhodes. 

Practices will then take place every Monday at 7 p.m. at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church. No performances are scheduled as of yet because of public health restrictions. 

There is a fee of $20 for the fall session and those attending practice must bring a pencil, water bottle, proof of vaccination and masks must be worn at all time. 

Despite some of the limitations, Rhodes said they are excited to get back together again. 

“We were very excited because we were just progressing and planning to do a concert in March. We had a practice and then we sent an email to everyone saying that we were going to have to cancel so we didn't even get to say goodbye to each other at our practice. So, it was very sudden,” she said. 

New members are welcome to join. Those interested can contact Rhodes at 306-640-8098 or message them on Facebook.
