Friends in Song
The 'Association of Friends in Song' is a registered non-profit organization started in 1984 by Thomas and Yvette Kyte. It consists of men and women who wish to promote music through singing and entertaining others with the skills we've acquired. Since its formation, the 'Glee Club' has continued to grow along with its musical ability. Their repertoire includes such selections as pop tunes, classics, tunes from movies and Broadway, Acadian selections and just plain fun songs. It also includes industrial tunes similar to those sung by 'Men of the Deep' (Coal Miners Chorus). We have also entertained at Legion functions with their knowledge of selections from the war years. Friends in song has performed for many charity fund raising drives, also in hospitals, schools, senior citizen's homes, public concerts and has also been a source of entertainment for conventions and parties.

In 1987, we performed at the 'Mining Association of Canada' convention in Ottawa at the Westin Hotel, sponsored by Noranda. During the same year we were the opening entertainers for the Ronnie Prophet and Freddie Fender shows in Bathurst and Dalhousie. Following that, we did a concert with the 'Men of the Deep' in Campbellton. All this, conbined with appearances at the local music festival, have made this group the favorite of many people in the region. Their versatility and ability to coordinate music, costuming and choreography have made them a most entertaining musical review group.

We meet every Wednesday at 7 pm in the Florence Roussy Room at the K.C. Irving Regional Centre on St. Anne Street. New members are always welcome. The only requirement is to enjoy singing. Everything else is taught at the group sessions.
