Brighten your day; leave your worries on the doorstep; come on over to the sunny side and sing along or swing along with the Brock House Society’s gleeful senior songsters.


The benefits of ensemble singing in a non-threatening social setting are unique for each individual. We hope the fun we have will improve your sense of joy and overall well-being and, of course, your singing. All voices are welcome. We do some sing-alongs at Brock House events and our monthly visits to Vancouver seniors’ residences are popular with both our hosts and our members.
