Cool Choir is in search of a fun, knowledgeable individual to lead it’s new YEG location! Check out post below!

Cool Choir is a new concept in community choirs – direct from the UK. This is a non-auditioned, all-inclusive adult rock and pop choir experience performing original and exclusive arrangements of songs by legendary groups and artists – in rich harmony.

Already successful in Calgary, there are nearly 400 members of public singing weekly across multiple locations and now Cool Choir has grown to be Calgary’s largest, recreational choir and the only non-auditioned adult rock and pop choir of its kind in the city – just two years since launch.

Our fun, fast growing, young and one-of-a-kind vibrant company is seeking an exceptionally talented, energetic candidate to launch Cool Choir in Edmonton in September 2018.

Working alongside the company’s Director, you will launch and run this community based business and your skills as a natural leader, along with your ability to inspire and motivate those around you will ensure its success. You will be self-employed and running your own business, so bring your entrepreneurial skills to the party!

You will have a bubbly, engaging and sometimes quirky personality (personality is key to this role!) and like us, you will have a passion for rock and pop music.  Our ideal candidate will have advanced piano skills but a formal background in music is not necessary.  Your boundless energy, ear for harmony, ability to hold a tune and your enthusiasm for technology and social media will keep your members wanting more.

This is a role requiring a long-term commitment and would be suited to new graduate musicians, teachers/vocal coaches looking for a new challenge, professional musicians looking for a second income or anyone with the skills required, looking for an entrepreneurial business opportunity.  You must:

  • Be able to read music
  • Have the ability to network, promote and be comfortable being interviewed by the media
  • Be exceptionally comfortable with technology and social media
  • Have the desire to motivate, inspire and engage others
  • Be a great communicator
  • Have a bubbly, engaging and quirky personality
  • Be energetic and vibrant
  • Driven, highly motivated and ambitious
  • Have great leadership and people skills
  • Have endless enthusiasm and energy
  • Be able to take creative direction and guidance on occasion
  • Car owner/driver essential
  • Own or be willing to purchase a portable piano, pa system and microphone

 

The following skills are desirable but not essential;

Knowledge of music software and recording

Ability to arrange music

If you are looking to elevate your own status as an independent artist or build a fan base this role is not for you

You must be permanently resident or have citizenship status in Canada and legally allowed to work

Full training will be given and for the right candidate, this is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a growing company.

Please submit your resume to [email protected] along with a link to a 1 minute video uploaded to You-tube showing the fun side of your personality (this does not need to be music related).

Deadline for applications is February 28th and whilst we thank everyone for their time, only suitable candidates will be contacted.

City will identify potential locations for new homeless shelter by early May

Council supports interim shelter, directs administration to find alternative location

City Council has resolved to support the continuation of an interim shelter and directed administration to find a new location in collaboration with the Province and service providers.

“We have a responsibility to look after our most vulnerable citizens in a responsible manner, with the interests of the wider community in mind as well,” said Mayor Tara Veer. “Without a permanent integrated homeless shelter in place, infrastructure we have been advocating the Province for years to complete, it is no surprise that the public is frustrated, the service providers are frustrated and the vulnerable themselves are frustrated. There are significant consequences in the community for having temporary and insufficient solutions to very complex social challenges, but I am hopeful the preliminary direction Council gave today will help will bridge the gap for vulnerable citizens, the service providers, and our business community and community in general until a more permanent solution can be put into place.”

Within four weeks, administration will bring back options for a new interim shelter location for Council to consider. To ensure the proper processes take place for the relocation, administration will also bring forward a recommendation to extend the operations at the current temporary shelter site at Cannery Row.

“Although we are proceeding with exploration of potential new interim sites, we will most likely need Council to approve an extension of the Cannery Row site until the new location is up and running. When we come back in four weeks, we will bring timing, costs and procedural requirements to make the move to a new site,” said City Manager Allan Seabrooke.

At this time, the Cannery Row site has guaranteed Provincial funding until March 31, 2022. The City will work with the Province and Safe Harbour to secure proper funding for a new temporary location.

“During discussions, Council was made aware of the funding agreement in place, and recognizes there could be financial requirements from The City to move and operate the interim shelter in its new location,” said Seabrooke. “We will gather as much information as possible to allow Council to make an informed decision, including potential operating and capital costs, which will require Council approval.”

“City Council’s resolutions tonight aim to balance the needs of Red Deer’s vulnerable population, surrounding properties and the community as a whole. However, despite our best efforts, Safe Harbour and the Province of Alberta may still select their own site, as long as it is zoned for public service,” said Seabrooke.

The interim shelter is expected to support the community’s vulnerable population until a permanent shelter is operational. On February 7, 2020, the Province committed to $7 million in its 2020 Capital Plan for a purpose built integrated emergency shelter in Red Deer. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Province of Alberta and The City of Red Deer was finalized in February 2021 to establish a general high-level understanding related to the provincially managed project to meet the current and future needs in Red Deer. Specifics about location, timing and operational details have not yet been determined by the provincial government.
