EnChor East is very pleased to have received donations, including $100 from Councillor Tim Outhit; $200 from Ken Shea, President and CEO of East Coast Credit Union; and an additional $200 in anonymous donations.
Choirs are good for the spirit of a community. EnChor East is trying very hard to keep going in these difficult times and making plans for the future. We will persist.
If you want to make a donation to the choir you can do so by cheque to EnChor East and mailing it to our treasurer Don Brooking at 225-27 Brookdale Cres, Dartmouth, NS B3A 4N5.
Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Let us keep going in the other way!
We hope to see everyone there
In this time of COVID 19, we have to follow the advice we were trying to memorize for our Spring concert, kick up our heels and go another way. For us it was not as easy as it was for the Kicking Horse River, but the EnChor East Board has made plans to have three online, virtual gatherings for ALL members and anyone who wants to join this fall, by using Zoom. Prior to each gathering, our conductor will send out the E Mail link for the zoom meeting to everyone. Please put these dates on your calendar!
Tuesday, October 06, 7:15pm
Tuesday, November 03, 7:15pm
Tuesday December 01, 7:15pm
Our conductor, Krista Vincent and accompanist Dean Bradshaw will be participating in all three get-togethers.
At the on-line get-togethers, we will be singing (at home, in isolation). Time will also be set aside for participants to make comments or contributions, and to socialize in other ways. We are thinking that each session would last for more than an hour.
These sessions are free on Zoom. If anyone needs assistance, help will be available. Please send a request e-mail to join or to get help to firstname.lastname@example.org
Choir members and other interested singers, please look under Information for Choir Members for further details.
