"Singing doesn’t just make us feel better – it makes us better people. By singing in a group, we choose to recede for a moment from selfish concerns and pursue harmony with those around us."
The Fall term starts in September and the Spring term starts in January of each year. We perform a Christmas concert at St. Georges United Church, usually two shows and one Spring show in May usually at the Sid Williams Theatre. We also have a one day workshop per term and occasionally perform in local festivals or for benefit concerts.
All new members will meet with the musical director for a group session to determine voice placement after the first rehearsal of each term. This is very brief and is to determine which section of the choir is best for your voice range.
Please be present and on time for all rehearsals, sectionals, and performances. If you need to miss an occasional rehearsal please inform your section leader. Please discuss plans for extended absences with section leader or musical director. To perform in concerts you must not miss more than three rehearsals per term.
To prepare for performances, we ask our members to attend regularly scheduled sectional rehearsals and to practice, at home. To assist learning there are practice tracks, audio-video song samples and weekly rehearsal plans available on the website.
All returning and new members must register through the website prior to the first rehearsal of the start of term. Early registration will help us prepare more efficiently for the term. Please note Celebration Singers SATB choir now has a 30 member cap for the Soprano and Alto sections. To assure a spot in those sections, register early, late registrations will have the choice of a wait list or joining the Grace Notes SSAA women's ensemble. You will receive a web password at the first rehearsal which will give you access to the members only area of this website where you will find more helpful tools and information.
To register complete the appropriate forms for the choir or choirs you wish to join in the JOIN drop down menu.
