The diversity of pitches and tones in the Fernie Community Choir drew a large crowd to The Arts Station Sunday.

The large group of singers, young and old, proudly stood on the stage singing, while David Pasivirta directed them.

“I’m so glad that I was encouraged to do this endeavor, to be a part of the community choir,” Pasivirta said.

“They twisted my arm really,” he joked.

And his light, up-beat attitude carried its way through the concert.

Although the song’s messages were strong, the sounds themselves were optimistic and buoyant.

The singers started off the night with three traditional African freedom songs, followed by a pop song written after the 2004 tsunami and finished up the performance with a piece Pasivirta dedicated to his late high school choir teacher.
