 Adult Choirs

Our adult choir is an auditioned symphonic SATB choir of about 100 singers. We also have a smaller chamber ensemble, drawn from our adult choir.

Contact our administrator to schedule an audition for the 2023-24 season!

Youth and Children’s Choirs

Young singers are welcome in our Children’s Choir (age 7 to 13) and Youth Choir (age 14 to 23). We offer performance opportunities, a first-rate music education, and terrific collaborations with musicians and singers all over the world – all in a fun and supportive environment! Our season begins in September and ends in spring.                                                           

In the 2022-23 season, the children’s choir wrote a song with composer Jim Papoulis, took a trip to Niagara Falls to sing with the Chorus Niagara children’s choir,  and performed in Yuletide Spectacular at Centre In the Square with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony.  They’ll perform in Water: An Environmental Oratorio with the adult and youth choirs May 28 at Centre in The Square. Our conductor in 2023-2024 is Andrea DeBoer-Jones.

The youth choir performed in October with the Meadowlands Corps Band, performed in The Magical World of Harry Potter at Centre In The Square with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony in February, and made a collaborative video with choirs in the Philippines and Indonesia. They’ll perform in Water: An Environmental Oratorio with the adult and children’s choirs May 28 at Centre in The Square. Our conductor in 2023-2024 is Tom Corken.

Music in the community

We love to make music in all kinds of places. We have performed beside hiking trails on the banks of the Grand River in Cambridge; held open rehearsals and performances at Kitchener City Hall; offered a concert preview at Kitchener Public Library, and our children’s choir has delighted the crowds at Wonders of Winter in Waterloo. All for free.

Our singers have performed at Christkindlmarkt; at a fund-raiser for Women’s Crisis Services; at BlackBerry’s offices; and at a special Remembrance Day event featuring Lieutenant-General Roméo Dallaire.

We have helped bring great composers such as Eriks Ešenvalds and Sir James MacMillan to give public workshops, concerts and lectures that are accessible to everyone. We have also produced benefit concerts to help raise money for those stricken by disaster.
