Parry Sound Singers
In 2015 our long time and much loved accompanist Lois Szczesniak retired and passed the keyboard on to Theresa Beninger in January. Theresa, a local piano teacher, gamely took on the large repertoire and joined in the hijinks on stage with enthusiasm. Lois continues to help out on occasion, especially with quartets and small groups. Also in 2015 our director Gaylle finally got her wish, and Carinna Pellett, a former assistant director, returned to Parry Sound and took over the leadership of the Singers. At the end of the year, however, Carinna found herself headed back north to teach and Gaylle Turner once again resumed the directorship of the chorus for the 2016/17 year with a show to celebrate the 150th birthday of Canada's birthday.
