Spotlight on a Young Artist

Cordova Bay Elementary School Choir

The Cordova Bay Elementary School Choir was developed by Lena Palermo in September, 2016.  “I wanted to give the kids the special opportunity choral singing offers,” says Ms. Palermo. The group consists of 55 students from grades three to five. Since their formation, they’ve been busy.  In November of ’16, the choir was featured in five-time Juno award winner Liona Boyd’s concert at the Mary Winspear Centre titled “A Winter Fantasy.” They were also a hit at the Saanich Municipal Hall’s “Deck The Hall” event in December. And they were featured numerous times in their school’s production of “Santa’s Frosty Follies”. In February 2017, they’ve been invited to sing with the Victoria Big Band for a Valentine’s Day concert. Of course, “they are very excited to celebrate Canada’s birthday with the Peninsula Singers,” says Ms. Palermo.
