What Do We Sing?
We sing a Capella (unaccompanied) four part harmony, predominantly in the barbership style. Our musical selections range from Current Contemporary to Traditional.
Our current and past repertoire include:
- The Way I Am
- You've got a Friend in Me
- Don't Stop
- Change the World
- A Wink & A Smile
- A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square
- The Way You Look Tonight... and many others including a full and entertaining Christmas package
Where Do We Sing?
We perform in the local community as we have opportunity and put on two major shows per year. BUT, we are not just a performance chorus - we also compete, each spring, in a Regional Competition with other Sweet Adelines choruses from BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan. This competition can be anywhere in our Region.
How Can You Join Us?
We rehearse Tuesday evenings throughout the year, usually at Garden Park Tower in Abbotsford - most because in the summer we often rehearse outdoors in parks. Click Here to learn more about becoming a member.
Our Director - Lynn P
Valley Echoes’ Director is the fun loving and ever playful Lynn P.
Lynn loves music and loves Valley Echoes. She repeatedly states that working, in her own business, keeps getting in the way of her chorus time!
Lynn has been a member of Valley Echoes since Nov 2010 and sang in both the Tenor and Baritone sections, as needed. She was appointed section leader and began leading warm-ups under our then director, Carol Argue, and signed up for the Sweet Adelines' Director Certification Program (DCP). Lynn began her directing journey under the expert tutelage of Charlie Metzger, at Soundscape Chorus. Additionally, she attended Director Workshops at Harmony College and various other workshops and seminars. When Sean Huston officially appointed her as Valley Echoes Assistant Director, Lynn dove into her DCP, in earnest, and completed it April 2017. May 1, 2017 we hired her!
Lynn is an avid gardener, enjoys hiking and loves learning. When she is not singing, working, studying, gardening or hiking you'll find her hanging out with her family and friends.
