Published

4 minute read

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.

Getting My Blood Glucose Back in the Normal Range Gave Me Tears of Joy

Published on

Diabetes runs in my family; my mom has it and my grandma did too. Well before Christmas 2019, at a routine physical my doctor told me that I have diabetes. I tried to bring it down for the next 3 months, but I was not successful, in fact it got worse. At this time, the doctor referred me to the PCN Family Nurse. I started seeing her and we made plans for how I could get through the Christmas season. However, I did very poorly as I love sweets. Getting poor readings, feeling exhausted and worrying who would look after my daughter if something were to happen to me left me very lethargic and depressed.

The nurse was patient and very encouraging. She helped me to change my mindset. I decided to take up the challenge to improve my blood glucose. The nurse and I talked about the rice in my diet and portion sizes of rice. I am from an island nation and rice is our staple. I did some testing of my blood glucose after consuming some of my favorite foods and I notice that amount of rice I was consuming did increase my blood glucose significantly. I thought I could never have a meal without it being mostly rice but I have learned now that I can do this quite easily. Even though I have a puppy, I would only walk her for 5 to 10 minutes at a time.

Since my mindset change, I worked to build up my activity. I started with 5-minute stints and pushed myself forward until now I am at one-hour stints. I take the dog for nice long walks and we both enjoy it. People comment on how good I look and how much more energetic I am. I feel really good now, both physically and mentally. The nurse helped to give me the confidence to tackle diabetes. I had tears of joy when I learned my blood glucose is back to the normal range.
