We can't wait for you to see what we have in store for 2019!
Thanks to all who joined us for our Christmas concerts in Winsloe, New London and Summerside! We're already hard at working preparing for our Spring program and a special appearance with the PEI Symphony Orchestra in April.
We are accepting new members to join us for this exciting term starting on Tuesday, January 8 at 7:00 p.m. so circle Tuesdays on your calendar and come out and sing with us. We welcome new members to just show up and sing during the first three rehearsals of a new term (no auditions!) so we hope to see you this month.
- As we finish one term, we're looking forward to the next! Did you enjoy our concert? Wish it could be YOU onstage? We'll start over again on Tuesday January 8 and YOU could be singing with us! Join us for an especially exciting term where our women will be joining the PEI Symphony Orchestra this spring in a special performance!
- 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 were excited to perform at the Premier's levee on New Year's Day at Confederation Centre, but alas, the weather had other plans! We're holding out hope that the REST of the Tuesdays this winter will be kinder to us. This was an early reminder to regularly check our up-to-date calendar for concerts, rehearsal and, let's face it, storm cancellations throughout the term.
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.
