‘It’s a sense of achievement’: Penticton Tuneagers choir celebrates 50th anniversary

The Penticton Tuneagers established in 1970 are still going strong after 50 years because they are powered by their love of song. For members, it’s so much more than just a choir, they say.

“There’s a special feeling when you are older and able to accomplish what they accomplish,” said Patti Craig, former director of the Penticton Tuneagers.

“It’s a sense of achievement. It’s a sense of, ‘Look at me.’ You know, look at me and what I can do.”

“Over the years they toured. They went to Hawaii twice and they were on the old Tommy Common Show.”
