"The AVHC Board issues the following media release in response to today’s events regarding the choir." – October 7, 2015
The Annapolis Valley Honour Choir is saddened to learn that charges have been laid by the Kings RCMP against a former parent in relation to mishandling of monetary funds.
The Annapolis Valley Honour Choir has been instructing youth for over 25 years within the Annapolis Valley. Once a school board based program, the organization evolved in 1999, into a community led auditioned choir accepting choristers from Annapolis, Kings, and Hants counties. The organization emphasizes musical and vocal training through choral music experiences that allow leadership opportunities, volunteerism, and community involvement. It provides a powerful means for young choral musicians to express themselves musically nurturing confidence and self-esteem.
The Board members of the organization along with its staff are committed to providing an instructional music program that enriches the lives of its members and their communities. "The Annapolis Valley Honour Choir will continue to perform, host, and maintain the high level of excellence that our supporters and community members have come to expect from our organization. Our Board and the parent membership are committed that this disappointing news will not deter our choristers from doing what they love to do; make beautiful music and sharing it with others." says Board Chair, Kim Sweet.
The Choir next performs at the "Don't Be Afraid - A Choir for Social Change" Fundraising Event on October 24, 2015 at Horton High School beginning at 7:30 pm.
