Peninsula Singers seeking altos for next production

As they gear up to start rehearsals for their spring show, the Peninsula Singers are putting out the call for more altos.

Peninsula Singers artistic director Glenda Korella wants you — to sing.

As they gear up to start rehearsals for their spring show, the Peninsula Singers are putting out the call for more altos.

“Usually you’re looking for sopranos, but we need altos,” said publicist — and alto herself — Virginia Watson-Rouslin. “The altos are what keep everyone balanced.”

And it’s not just women the choir is looking for; tenors are also in high demand. “We lavish our affection on the men,” said Watson-Rouslin, laughing. “If they come, we’re very happy to see them.”

The group has been around for 30 years and has 60 members currently, all excited to start preparing for The Peninsula Singers Present Centre Stage in Vegas, opening May 1 at the Mary Winspear Centre.

The show opens with Viva Las Vegas, of course, and features songs by Elvis, Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder, among others, and even touts an Elvis impersonator.

“We’re going to be singing everything from Fly Me to the Moon, Love Me Tender and Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” said Watson-Rouslin.

“And we sing from memory. You have to have memorized all the singing and the choreography. It’s good for the brain,” she added.

Prospective singers should have experience, the ability to commit to one night a week of rehearsals and be ready to enjoy themselves, she said. “We have a lot of fun!”
