We hate to remind you that summer's almost over . . . but that means we're accepting new members!
In 2017, we celebrated Canada's 150. In 2018, we celebrate our own anniversary: 40 years of the Summerside Community Choir.
- We hope you were able to make it to one of our 40th anniversary concerts, May 27 at Summerside Trinity United Church and June 2 at historic St. Mary's in Indian River. The celebration continues as we look ahead to the fall term and begin planning our Christmas Concert. (Save the date: December 9!)
- 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!
- We may be sad to see the summer go (okay, maybe not the HEAT!) but that means we get to start singing again! Please check our calendar page for practice dates and times, and click on individual events for detailed rehearsal notes, including which weeks we're accepting new members.
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.
