We are a unique choir in that we do not do ticketed events but sing when invited sometimes with other groups and sometimes we are it. So what to do when you want a wider audience? Well you write up a small article and submit it to a local publication.
In our area, the Village Voice is published in the small towns around us and we have had an article in before that netted new singers and new venues for singing.
Maybe YOU have a gig for us or YOU want to sing. Do let us know. This is what we submitted.
The Embro Thistle Singers is a group of people hailing anywhere from Strathroy to Woodstock who gather every other week at Knox United Church in Embro to sing. We love all kinds of music and sing the range from classical to popular. We have people who read music and people who are happy with on the job training. We help each other so that in the end we sing in very well balanced harmony. We are all learning all the time.
Our motto is "For the Love of Song, Service & Fun". We have no dues and the only cost is a shirt if you decide to stay with us. We often get donations from our singing gigs which we use to purchase music.
We are also looking for places to sing. We would love to sing for a special occasion at your church, retirement facility, school or other special event or fund raiser. We have sung at special services or evenings at Brooksdale Church, Sweaburg United, Knox United in Embro and St. James in Ingersoll. We have performed for the Tsunami Relief Concert for Japan, Relay for Life, the Lighting of the Lights, Youth for Christ and the Red Cross. We would love to be of service to you and your group. Just ask and we will do our best to be available to you.
