with Sandi & Jeremy

Spirit’s Call Choir is an all-ages, non-audition, non-religious choir that brings community together in joyful harmony to raise funds and awareness for people in need.  We sing for personal, choral and global harmony, and encourage everyone to sing out because to us, sharing joy with each other, our audiences and those we help is what really matters.

  • Sing songs from pop to traditional and from around the world
  • Enjoy a positive, encouraging and harmony-filled atmosphere
  • Perform in concert to raise awareness and funds for charity
  • Enjoy our social evenings, like potluck, movie or game night…
  • Get energized at as many as three singing sessions per week

We raise funds and awareness for people in need.

We support our community

Spirit’s Call Choir Winnipeg, with its 160 members singing to sold out concert venues, raised awareness and nearly $200,000 for charity, helping to improve people’s lives. We’d like to achieve this on the North Shore.

It’s uplifting

For many, it is therapeutic and spiritual to be enveloped in the glorious harmonies of so many joyful voices.

It’s fun and real

The atmosphere is filled with laughter as we learn our songs. And because this is a safe place to sing, when we make mistakes it’s another opportunity to have fun and be real.

Spirit’s Call Choir is for ANYONE who wants to sing, because everyone has a voice
and a story to share.

What People Say About Us

“My friend Martha once shared with me that she had joined a non-audition choir for people who didn’t necessarily need to be great at singing. At that time there were 150 members (now grown to 175) and the anonymity that number promised was appealing to me………..I am definitely not a solo kind of gal (for very good reason). However I did grow up listening to all the old musical sound tracks (“Just you wait ‘enry ‘iggins, just you wait….”, etc) and my sisters and I, even in adulthood still get a kick out of breaking suddenly into unabashed, spirited renditions of “The Hills Are Alive” for our own entertainment. So we knew singing could be fun. But could we let go of our feigned British accents and flourishes and be semi-serious about it? We discussed it one afternoon and my sisters and I thought we might be brave enough to try. I believe there were one or two smirks from our husbands who have, to be fair, been subjected to our raucous musical eruptions over the years. So we suggested they put their money where their smirks were and challenged them to show us what they were made of. Luckily, it was a Sunday afternoon; hence wine had been flowing freely. The brothers-in-law-three, eyeballs rolling, agreed to take up the challenge for one season. That was five years ago and sisters and husbands are still going strong. I would never have dreamed it possible or likely. But there was a key ingredient to our loyal devotion. His name is Jeremy. He’s the real McCoy. An expert at what he does, as well as a comedian who knows his members and draws everyone into hilarity along with some damn good singing. WE ROCKED! And we’re hooked. And we miss him. And if you’re lucky enough to have a chance to sing with him, perhaps you’ll be like my sisters and our husbands and never look back!” Colleen Sydor

“I went to the first session and I had so much fun!! Sandi and Jeremy are such warm and welcoming people and can make anyone feel at home. I can’t remember the last time I had that much fun singing. It is a choir that anyone can join and everyone should. It is such a fun environment to be in where laughing and smiling are contagious. I would recommend this choir to anyone who is looking to have a fun time singing. I am so glad I found this choir!” Erica Steward

Spirit's Call Choir North Vancouver

“When I first joined Spirits Call choir about 10 years ago I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew I wanted to bring music back into my life but had never sung harmony, didn’t even know where I fit voicewise. Turns out I was an Alto. The feelings I left with that first day were excitement, elation, a sense of having found what I was looking for. With Jeremy as music director the afternoons were full of fun, laughter and lots of music of every style and language, the concerts were enjoyed as much by the singers as the audiences. Some of the music challenges he threw at us were scary but we managed to rise to the challenges with his patient and expert guidance. Jeremy is greatly missed, Winnipeg’s loss is Vancouver’s gain. Thank you Jeremy for everything, especially for finding such a great replacement to direct our choir.” Joan Hodgson

“…I felt as if I had a spiritual life again, was singing for a purpose, and made many friends. Jeremy, our choir director, created a supportive and humourous environment as he gently pushed us to new heights.”

“I still vividly recall Grade 2… the day of the concert the teacher took me aside and asked me if I would just mouth the words because my singing was disturbing the rest of the choir. I was mortified and never sang again, not even when I was alone. All that changed when I met Jeremy and Spirit’s Call Choir. I may not be a great singer, but now I can sing; it has expanded my world in so many ways.”
Linda Olsen

“I left the choir practice feeling very inspired and am reconnectin­g with my passion for music. This, along with the fun atmosphere keeps me coming back!” Jim Leong
