It's good to be back at it!
There's a fall chill in the air, and we're well underway! New and returning singers are hard at work preparing for our 2018 Christmas concerts.
We're no longer accepting new members for 2018, but if you missed your chance to join us, please keep us in mind for our next term, starting January 2019!
In 2017, we celebrated Canada's 150. In 2018, we celebrate our own anniversary: 40 years of the Summerside Community Choir.
- Who's got Christmas concerts? WE'VE got Christmas concerts! Three of them this year. Please mark your calendars for New London on Dec. 1, Winsloe on Dec. 8, and Summerside on Dec. 9. Details and concert poster coming soon!
- High School students in Grades 11 and 12 who wish to join the choir can count up to 100 hours singing with the choir (at a rate of $5/hour) towards a post-secondary bursary through PEI's Community Service Bursary Program. Keep this in mind when planning for next school year!
- There's still some time to contact your friendly, neighbourhood choir member and get in on our delicious meat fundraiser. Great meat cuts at great prices! Orders are due November 6 and the goods will be available before the end of the month.
Interested in joining us as a choir member? We are an open membership (no audition required!), mixed-voice community choir who welcomes new (and returning!) members at the beginning of each term to work towards an end-of-term concert. We perform two Christmas concerts in December and two spring concerts in May or June and may have extra events throughout the term. More information about joining the choir.
In 1978, Bill Leuty had a dream to start a community choir in Summerside, PEI, Canada. He was able to make this dream a reality, and in 2013 the 70-plus member Summerside Community Choir celebrated thirty-five years of choral music.
In 2014, our 40-member choir celebrated the 150th anniversary of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference with an all-Canadian "Together In Song" Concert Tour across PEI.
The Summerside Community Choir sings under the direction of Dr. Margot Rejskind.
