It's good to be back at it!
The year is not so new anymore, and we're well underway with our current term. New and returning singers are hard at work preparing for our 2019 spring concerts, including our April performance with the PEISO!
We're no longer accepting new members for this session, but if you missed your chance to join us, please keep us in mind for our next term, starting September 2019.
- Concert dates announced!! Please join us Sunday, May 26 at Central Queens United in Hunter River and Sunday June 9 at Trinity United Summerside for our spring performances. Both shows start at 7:00 p.m.
- 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 are well into rehearsals for "The World of Mahler 3!" The women of Summerside Community Choir are excited to participate in this choral-orchestral extravaganza Sunday, April 14 at Confederation Centre with the PEI Symphony Orchestra and several other island choristers from Sirens, The UPEI Women's Ensemble, Luminos Ensemble, Le Ragazze Girls Vocal Ensemble and Harmonia Girl's Choir and mezzo-soprano soloist Christianne Rushton. For more information, please visit the PEISO website event page or their FB event page
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.
