Spring Fundraising Concert

Brockville’s “Shout Sister!” choir is making a “joyful noise” for Fun With Books. Shout Sister founder Georgette Fry directs as the choir continues Shout Sister’s tradition of giving back to the community.  We dedicate our annual fundraiser to helping our communities.  We are also found throughout the year performing at other fundraisers and at senior’s homes.  Our performances are joyful occasions and our audiences respond with delight to our enthusiasm and energy.

There are 21 Chapters of Shout Sister! Choir in Ontario and we are constantly growing.  Shout Sister! takes an unorthodox approach to choral singing. We do not audition and we sing a fun variety of music from pop and Motown, to folk, to a touch of country and blues. We learn from recorded tracks so we require no reading of music. Our method is fresh and fun and we are a warm and welcoming community.

FUN WITH BOOKS is a non-profit charitable organization that has been distributing books free of charge to youngsters in Leeds and Grenville counties since December 1993.  Our mission statement consists of two goals: to instill a love of reading and books in preschoolers so that they will have a better chance of success in their years of schooling and working ahead, and to encourage children and their parents to spend some time every day reading and experiencing books together.

Six times a year, the children in our program receive a new book written, illustrated, and printed locally, which is theirs to keep. They continue receiving books every second month until they are 5 years old. Once they reach 5, they receive a special book, along with a graduation certificate and a letter to to the parents encouraging them to keep reading with their children. 

This is an all-ages show. Bring the whole family!

Tickets $10.00 - Children under 8 years free
