|StageFlight is a children’s pop-rock chorus here in Collingwood. It has members between the ages of 8 and 14. The program aims to build a love of music (all types), a love of performing, self-confidence, stage presence and a very positive attitude towards new experiences. Their repertoire runs the gamut from Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers to Katy Perry to Taylor Swift.|
StageFlight is directed by Jim Henderson, a retired teacher. He previously ran the program in the Beaches neighbourhood in Toronto and brought it to Collingwood 2 years ago. The program is all about fun. Being a great singer is not necessary. They performed at the Collingwood Farmer’s Market last week and the response was amazing. The program runs here from May to October. Over the winter, Jim runs the program in an orphanage in Mexico. The fall session begins on September 11 and ends on October 30.
