The Village Voices in the News!

Featured article in Westbrook Living Magazine

August/September 2019 Issue


In today’s world of cell phones, computers, tablets, and living alone, concerns surrounding loneliness and isolation abound. A recent University of Oxford study shows that people feel more positive and connected after actively singing in a choir and the Westbrook Village Voices is a perfect way to connect with others! 


Village Voices Choir Director Shelley Logan says, “It’s fascinating that people are returning to communal musical behaviors. Don’t listen to the voices in your head that say “you can’t do that” or “I can’t sing,” because we’ve been singing since we were born. Singing is natural and whether you’re into chamber music, pop, or jazz, you’ll find a place to belong in the Village Voices. We invite you to come witness the pleasure of singing in the choir – and bring a friend!” 


Rehearsals resume Wednesday, October 9, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. in preparation for our annual holiday show, “Christmas Time is Here.” Join us in the Vistas Ballroom on any rehearsal Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. 


Choir Director Shelley Logan and Accompanist Jan MacDonald bring decades of musical experience to the Village Voices and work with all choir members each week to find their voice and make beautiful music together. For more details, visit the Village Voices website at www.westbrookvillagevoices.com or call Shelley Logan at (425) 330-2317. 


Tickets for the 2019 winter season concert, Christmas Time is Here,  go on sale September 24, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. on the Village Voices website and the Westbrook Village PAC website, www.westbrookvillagepac.com.

Our New Risers!

And we extend A BIG VERY THANK YOU to all of our benefactors!

The Fund Raising Drive for the purchase of new risers that was initiated in late 2018 has come to fruition -- the new risers recently arrived and they are perfect in every way! They are safer, wider, more stable and facilitate easy access to all three levels. With the added railings and their modular construction, the new risers are secure and flexible, and allow for multiple arrangements to suit the event, be it a choral performance, a meeting or simply just for extra seating, 


The new riser system was dedicated in memory of Debbie Eaton during the Village Voices 2019 Spring Concerts on April 5th & 6th at 7:00 p.m., and on April 7th at 3:00 p.m. at the Vistas Ballroom.


Debbie is the late wife of choir member Mike Eaton. She was a long-time resident of Westbrook Village, a beloved friend of the Village Voices, and a very talented artist and interior designer in the NW Valley. We will fondly remember Debbie's contagious smile, her outgoing personality, kind heart, and love for everyone she met.
