Just in Time Choirs Season 15 Fun Facts

  • We are now in our 15th season of Just in Time Choirs!
  • Wendy Nixon Stothert’s original idea in 2005 was to start a 16 voice auditioned vocal jazz ensemble. The initial information night was so well attended that we ended up with a 60 voice Unplugged choir in addition to a 16 voice feature group later to be known as Vocal Minority.
  • In the Fall of 2006, the Unplugged choir and Vocal Minority were joined by an auditioned ensemble of women singers named the Jazzy Jems (now the Jems). There have been three choirs ever since.
  • Many people have shared their love of singing with us over the years and several members have been with us since the beginning.
  • To date we have had 438 different Unplugged singers, 75 Vocal Minority singers and 79 Jem singers!!!
  • To celebrate our 10th year anniversary in the Spring of 2014 about 45 Just in Time singers and their families made a trip to Cuba to perform and take part in several local music workshops.
  • Since The Fall of 2005 we have had 28 terms of themed music ending in concerts well supported by our community, family and friends.
  • To date Just in Time Choirs have performed 593 songs! 203 by Unplugged, 204 by Vocal Minority, 133 by the Jems, 6 by the Men, and 47 Finale songs sung by the collective voices of all three choirs!!!
  • We have done songs that start with every letter in the alphabet except X and Z!
  • Time really does fly when you’re having fun!
