History: Chorale Entre-Nous Choir was started 27 years ago by a group of retired teachers. It has evolved over the years into a fun, social, com- passionate group whose mission is to provide entertainment and music to seniors in long-term care and residences.

Until the pandemic, the choir gave recitals for seniors from October to May twice a month for many years and brought joy to a great many people. The choir also participated in special ceremonies, the RTOERO Christmas lunch, the goal always to bring happiness through our singing. The pandemic altered our procedures. We adapted to ZOOM practices; when the Health Min- istry allowed, we practiced in person but with safety protocols in place including masks, sanitation, dis- tancing and vaccinations. As we could not sing in residences, we learned to make videos that we could send them. We need to maintain a feeling of community and friendship with choristers.
Choir singing has many benefits much evident during the isolation of the pandemic. We socialized with others.

Singing increases “feel-good” hormones in the brain; it is also a good workout as to breathing, memory and concentration. You feel better when
you sing!

As we learn to live with viruses, we still hope to bring entertainment to residences; if not, videos will be sent. We are always recruiting new members, it is not necessary to know how to read music. Mp3 audio files are provided for personal practices at home.
