Members of Port McNeill's Wild Heart Youth Choir raise their arms at the close of a number in their annual spring concert at St. John Gualbert Church Sunday evening. Port Hardy's Wild Heart choir will debut its first concert next week at Port Hardy Secondary School.

Wild Hearts sing

The Wild Heart Music youth choir of Port McNeill closed out its second season with its annual spring concert.

PORT McNEILL—The venue was smaller and more intimate, but the energy was at peak level as the Wild Heart Music youth choir of Port McNeill closed out its second season with its annual spring concert at St. John Gualbert Church Sunday evening.

A wide-ranging set of 17 numbers included songs from both the junior and senior choirs and several solo and ensemble numbers. The highlight of the evening came with the presentation of There’s Still Today, which was written and produced by the program’s students.

The concert had originally been scheduled for a month earlier, with two shows at the North Island Secondary School Theatre featuring a performance by program founder Georgia Murray.

It was postponed when first-year director Stephanie Eakle was stricken ill, and Murray was unable to reschedule a trip from her Victoria home on a suitable make-up date. Last year, the program debuted with a spring concert at Gate House Community Theatre.

Next week, it’s Port Hardy’s turn to debut as the new Wild Heart Music chapter there hosts its inaugural mini concert on Thursday, June 12. The concert begins at 6:30 p.m., with doors open at 6 p.m. and includes a fund-raising bake sale.
