Penticton Western News letter to the editor

Letter: Singing Extravaganza praises

It’s time for something exciting and happy and uplifting

Recently I’ve given up reading much of the letters to the editor because it seems that everything being written is quite negative and I just end up feeling down.

It’s time for something exciting and happy and uplifting and that is Extravaganza.

Each September I bring you news of the coming musical event put on by all the local choirs. Choirs from Oliver, Summerland, Kelowna and, of course, Penticton. The local talent that makes up these choirs is incredible.

Would you like to sing in the Extravaganza?

Each year the Penticton United Church choir welcomes friends to join with us and be a part of this exciting event. This is a short-term commitment ending with the performance on Nov. 17. Practice will start on Thursday, Oct. 3 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the church. The finale to the Extravaganza will showcase a mass choir of over 200 voices.

Now doesn’t that sound like something to take part in to lift the spirit?
