Free youth choir for the wild at heart

The Wild Heart Youth Choir program offers an opportunity for Port Hardy’s youth to take advantage of the free program.

PORT HARDY—Following a successful debut season in Port McNeill, the Wild Heart Youth Choir program is offering an opportunity for Port Hardy’s youth to take advantage of the free program.

But there’s a catch — Port Hardy has to want it.

An organizational meeting for parents will be held Monday, Feb. 3, at St. Columba Church, to determine interest in the program, which offers free choral instruction and performance opportunities to youth from age 6-18. If there is sufficient interest, practice times and other details of the program will be determined by local organizers.

Wild Heart Music was started through an online, fund-raising auction hosted in 2012 by recording artist Georgia Murray, a Port McNeill native now living in Victoria. Murray plans another auction in the coming month, and money raised will be applied to the Wild Heart program. Should Port Hardy form a choir, part of that funding can be used to hire a choir director.

For more information, call Deb Maundrell at 250-230-0125.
