PORT McNEILL—Coming off a highly successful debut year, the Wild Heart Youth Choir will kick off its second season with registration and opening practices Wed., Jan. 15, at St. John Gualbert (A-Frame) Church.

The program, the brainchild of Port McNeill-raised singer/songwriter Georgia Murray, offers singing lessons and performance opportunities for youths from kindergarten through high school.

Murray, now based in Victoria, hosted an online auction in 2012 that raised $20,000 to begin the program, which started last January and drew approximately 50 students.

Practices are held at the church each Wednesday after school, with the Juniors (11-under) singing from 4-5 p.m. and Seniors (12-over) from 5-6:30 p.m.

Another fund-raising auction is planned for February, and Murray is scheduled to join the choir in a spring concert in May.

There is no cost for youths to participate. Those interested may register at the church Jan. 15 or call Deborah at 250-956-3297.
