    Foothills Philharmonic Vocal Jazz is a little group who has a lot of fun! We are one of the several choirs that the Foothills Philharmonic Society has consisted of over the last 10 years. We have performed concerts with the society's Chorus, Men's Choir and Chamber Choir. Most recently, one of our dreams came true when we had the privilege of singing with FPS's Orchestra and Big Band!


    Our great love is singing at senior care homes - it is a true joy to have residents singing along with us whenever we're performing one of their favourite songs! Our repertoire ranges from sassy jazz numbers such as Chicago's All That Jazz; an array of classic songs by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Nat King Cole, and war songs sung in the Andrews Sisters style. We also love to tackle jazz arrangements of classic pop and Pentatonix arrangements of Christmas songs and Beatles’ songs. We'll jazz anything up if we're given the opportunity!


    Heather Haaland is our wonderful and talented director/accompanist/arranger. Please feel free to sing along with us!
