In 2017, we celebrated Canada's 150. In 2018, we celebrate our own anniversary: 40 years of the Summerside Community Choir.
We started rehearsals on January 9, 2018 and we welcome new singers to join us for this special term!
- Our season started January 9, and new members are welcome to join before the end of the month. No auditions necessary, simply show up to a Tuesday night rehearsal!
- 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. Join today and start earning money for school!
- The choir is joining forces with MacQuarrie's Meats this month with an offer you won't want to miss! You get generous pricing on locally grown Island meats and we raise funds for our 40th anniversary plans. Please see our Facebook Post for more information, and consider placing an order before January 23 through your friendly, neighbourhood choir member or directly with our fundraising committee.
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.
