In September 2015 the Island Choirs will introduce a new singing program for ACTIVE BOYS entitled SongSport!
New Singing Program for Active Boys!
Boys need to move! Boys love to sing! Our new program is all about those things! Fast-paced rehearsals that mix singing, physical games and choreography will help boys build great vocal skills, learn more about music AND have a ton of fun. Using common objects like balls, bean bags and hoops, the conductor will guide the boys on a discovery of music fundamentals and finding the connection between movement and song. Each concert will feature songs with movement - from traditional to hip-hop moves - to get hearts a-pumping, toes a-tapping and instill a life-long love of singing!
Register NOW! Open to Boys ages 7-12
Mondays 5:00-6:00pm in Nanaimo, starting September 2015
Wednesdays 5:30-6:30pm in Burnaby, starting September 2015

BCBC FINANCIAL POLICIES: The BCBC is a non-profit arts organization whose activities are covered through membership tuition, concert revenues, tax-deductible donations from individuals, corporations and private foundations and fundraising activities. In 2007, the BCBC Board of Directors asked the BCBC membership for feedback in an online survey that related to the Choir. One of the areas explored was the VALUE of what the Choir was offering for the fees collected. Everyone that completed the survey agreed that their son was receiving great value for the fees paid. If compared to a high-level sports team, the Choir was a bargain during non-touring years and comparable in fees during an International Touring year. Members receive valuable lessons and musical skills that can be compared to other music lessons. Weekly music lessons throughout the academic year would cost more than the tuition that BCBC members pay per year. If singing and traveling is the activity that your son LOVES – it is very good value for the cost.
Bursaries are available to members based on financial need. The bursary assists member's with a portion of their tuition. The funds for the bursaries come from donations. All Bursary Applications must be received by September 30. Application Forms available through the Office.
BCBC FUNDRAISING POLICY: The BCBC Board of Directors developed a Fundraising Policy in 1995, to create “an equal share of work for reward”. Each family is required to participate in Choir fundraising. However, each family may decide the best way for them to participate.
