Waterloo Heights’ resident choir, directed by Tim Louis, a local jazz pianist, hosted its first concert at the seniors living apartment building in May, and more performances will likely follow in the autumn.

The Waterloo Heights Seniors Sensations, a 25-member choir, began rehearsing in January, practising every Wednesday afternoon for an hour.

During their May performance, the choir performed several numbers, including a Canadian medley in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations as well as a Paul Anka medley. The choir members also performed a rain-themed medley and did their own rendition of My Favorite Things.

“I think the main point of the choir is just to have fun and to have sort of a forum where people can sing, and there are a lot of good voices, and many people have been in choirs before,” says Waterloo Heights fun co-ordinator Maia Hillen.

“It’s one of my favourite activities that I have done here, there is so much laughing and positivity, and Tim is a wonderful director. He’s a very talented musician, but he is also very engaging and he is great with the group, he listens to them and takes advice.

“We’re quite lucky to have Tim leading us.”
