Since January, seven groups of Sudburians with little or no singing experience have gathered to learn how to sing in a cappella barbershop style.

Led by Wanda Olsen and a team of 30 coaches from Nickel City Sound, each group has mastered one song they will perform as a part of this festival.

The public will get to see the results of this experiment at Sudbury Secondary School's Sheridan Auditorium starting at 2 p.m. April 6 at the When I Sing Festival.

“We’re all so excited about the progress, the anticipation and the incredible talent that we’ve found in our groups,” said Judith Duncan, event organizer.

“We have children as young as five and seniors as old as 80 participating. This event is going to be the first of many.”

Proceeds from the event benefit The Human League, Nickel City Sound and future a cappella festivals in the city.

Tickets, which cost $10 per person or $25 for a family, can be purchased by phoning 705-670-8633 or 705-522-4223.
