Nothing but Treble is the witty name of an afternoon concert Sept. 13 at 2 p.m. at Duncan Pentecostal Church at 931 Trunk Rd. in Duncan.

It features celebrated opera arias, beloved duets and poetic art songs performed by sopranos Heather MacGregor and Ann Yelland, with Rykie Avenant at the piano.

Colin Mailer (oboe d’amore) and Ron McFarlane (trumpet) will also join the fun.

Entry is by donation with all proceeds going to support the Encore! Women’s Choir’s mentorship program.

So, what about that mentorship program?

If you are a dedicated female vocal student with plans to pursue post-secondary studies in music following graduation in June 2016 or a mature female singer returning to vocal studies or beginning vocal studies, the choir is now accepting applications for our annual mentorship placement for the upcoming season.

The successful candidate will become a member of Encore! for the 2015/16 season, performing in all regular concerts and community sing-outs, attending workshops and music festival performances, and committing to rehearsals.

The successful candidate will also be given a feature spot on the concert program at the choir’s season-ending show and will receive a bursary of $750.

It’s a great chance to develop knowledge of choral and vocal singing techniques; ear training skills; blend and tonal balance; musicianship as it pertains to choral singing; friendships with like-minded individuals; and professional contacts.

Interested singers are asked to submit their musical resumes with full contact details to Christine Dandy at cdandy@shaw.ca before Aug. 31.
