When young adults are too old to join a choir and have decided not to go to school to build a career in music some singers in Prince George have found a place in the Nove Voce Choral Society.

There are 13 members of the choir between the ages of 15 and 35 and they will be showcasing their talent Nov. 6 during Fun, Frivolous and Ferocious, a choral frolic at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church at 8 p.m.

"These girls are not just your average schmo," said Robin Norman, choral director of Nove Voce. "We just need to give them a place to sing."

The concert will have the audience tapping their toes to popular excerpts from Glee, Queen and popular movies as well the singers will be in motion with three fully choreographed pieces created by award-winning local choreographer Kristin Helfrich.

There will also be pieces from modern Canadian composers and three pieces of vocal orchestra.

"Vocal orchestra is when you don't sing it, you bee-da-bee-da-dum it," explained Norman. "And of course we've got great tunes like Somebody to Love and Walkin' on Sunshine."

The choir is an award winning choral ensemble and the women who make up the choir are talented soloists in their own right and then blend their voices to make beautiful music, Norman said.

Nove Voce were recently selected as the top chamber choir at the Vancouver Kiwanis Music Festival in April and were selected to represent Prince George at the Provincial Performing Arts Festival in Duncan May 23 to 29. They have also just finished their first live album called Rosebuds in June, which is on sale now.

Nove Voce Will be performing at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church on Nov. 6, 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 available at Studio 2880 .For more information contact Robin Norman 250-562-6806 or 250 565-8972, or email normley@shaw.ca.
