Experience the joy of singing with Harrison-Kent choir

Group changes name to reflect members in all communities

In order to convince more locals to find out how good it feels to spend time singing, the community’s choir is issuing an invitation to join them on in their next meeting.

And they’re making a few changes to help reflect their group.

“Since so many of our members are from Agassiz, we have changed the name to The Harrison-Kent Community Singers,” said Carol Hepnar.

They also are planning to alternate practices monthly between Kent elementary school and the HHS Memorial Hall.

“We encourage those from the Kent area  as well as Harrison to drop by, listen in, sing if you choose to and share some refreshments with us,” she said. “This will be a very casual evening and you can feel free to come and go.”

She also reminds that people from Harrison Mills are welcome to join in.

And it’s also not important to have “terrific” voices, she added.

“There are no auditions, other than our Director, Brenda DiRezze and our pianist, Beccie Bokenfohr.

Those two ladies can help singers decide whether their voice wants to be a bass, tenor, alto or soprano.

“Brenda and Becci also choose very interesting music for us ranging from Canadian folk songs to Broadway musicals and lots in between. Sometimes we might sing in another language just for the fun of it,” Hepnar said.

The next meeting is on Monday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m., at Harrison Memorial Hall.

“We would be very happy to see many of you there,” Hepnar said.
