About Rhythm & Song!

Rhythm & Song! is a community choir based in Almonte and entering its 7th year. It belongs to the network of Ubuntu choirs (leadership training is based in Victoria, BC) who believe that the joy of singing is a universal birthright, and that together, regardless of musical background, we can help improve the world by joining voices in song.

Rhythm & Song! is for singers of all stripes and abilities. Interested singers of all ages are welcome.* There are no auditions. The ability to read music is NOT required and there are no formal performances. Any singing we do at community events is voluntary. Weekly sessions are designed for you to sing a lot, sing to develop your voice and listening skills, sing for an overall sense of well-being, and sing to connect with others. Short and longer songs come from world, folk, pop, gospel and roots traditions. We sing in unison, two-part, three-part and four-part harmony with a little body percussion thrown in for good measure. Lyrics are provided when necessary. Jennifer’s approach is focused, yet playful. Come move, listen, laugh, and sing. A lot.

* Kids 10 and under need to be accompanied by an adult.
