Newmarket's Keynotes Seniors' Choir is holding a free concert this Sunday called Cool Sounds, offering a variety of choral selections and some festive numbers. 

On Sunday, Nov. 27 at 2 p.m., the choir is performing at the Newmarket Seniors' Meeting Place, which is where it meets every week to rehearse. 

The choir is comprised of more than 20 seniors, aged 60 through to 90, and is led by by conductor Keith Profit. 

The group persevered through the pandemic, meeting outside and physically distancing when they were able, and performed its first concert since COVID-19 last May. 

Its repertoire typically ranges from classical to contemporary, as well as old standards and fun novelty pieces.

As well as the choir, the concert will include a woodwind quartet from Sir William Mulock Secondary School as special guest musicians. The choir often aims to showcase the talents of young performers in town. 

There will be light refreshments available. A freewill offering is being collected to help offset costs.
