Warm up your vocal cords and come sing at CBC on April 13th.
We're inviting you into our studio on Fridays throughout the month for a series called CBC Sings.
Each week we're picking a song that you learn ahead of time. Then you come to CBC, get help from a choir director and perform the song live on the show. The event is open to people of any age and any level of singing experience. If you like to sing, you're in!
This time, we're cheering on the Jets in they playoffs with "We Will Rock You" by Queen. Show up at 3:45 p.m. The address is 541 Portage Avenue.
We will give you lyrics and choir director Sara Clefstad will help you warm up and get the song ready to perform as a group on Up to Speed, just before 6 p.m. And everyone who comes will be entered in a draw for some CBC swag.

Please note, we will provide the lyrics to everyone when they arrive.
The more the merrier!
3:45 - 6 p.m.
