SheraKellyDo you love music and love to sing? Do you enjoy meeting others who have a love of music? Well Shera Kelly is looking for you. Shera Kelly is a singer and songwriter that is starting a community choir. Shera is a graduate of the Selkirk College of Music in Nelson. She teaches guitar and voice lessons in her East Van studio.  Her aim is to feature the local music scene so think The Be Good Tanyas, Mother Mother and Hannah Georgas. The inspiration for this choir came from one of her students who simply stated that they wished to be in a choir, but one that is ‘hip and urban’. Shera hopes that the music will inspire, connect and create community.  The East Van Kitchen Choir gets under way Thursday, September 10th at 1549 Kitchener Street (at Commercial Drive). No experience? No problem, you are invited to come check things out. There is a small fee of $5 per session with the first session being free. To register or for more information, you can contact Shera Kelly at sherakelly@hotmail.com or 604.600.9783.
