Upcoming Concert


The choir’s December 5 performance of “Messiah”, directed by Christopher Dawes, ¬†received many accolades from a packed house. We were pleased that the quality of the performance even moved some audience members to apply for membership. The choir resumes its rehearsals for the Spring Session on Monday January 8th.


The GCS was pleased to participate on November 10th in a lovely evening of remembrance at the old Acton Town Hall entitled "In word - In Song". The choir sang period songs to accompany the reading of letters from a WW 2 soldier. The audience in this intimate setting was moved, as were the singers. Lest we forget !!

Now we focus intensely on final rehearsals to deliver an outstanding performance of the glorious "Messiah" on December 2nd. Hope you will join us.


   

A few GCS members felt privileged and proud to contribute to a citizenship swearing in ceremony on September 29 by leading the audience in a rousing rendition of O Canada. Luc Bertrand, Anne Wilcox, Isobel Watkinson and Laurent & Paulette Thibault represented the choir on this occasion. Just another contribution by the GCS to making Halton Hills a better community, a place where "small town living is at its best".

We look forward to seeing you at our performance of Handel's famous "Messiah" composition on Saturday December 2nd.


Delighted to sing a rousing rendition of O Canada to open the Georgetown Skating Club's big Canada 150 celebration event on April 1.

That was an nice event to help out with, leading up to our own Canada 150 Eh! concert on May 6 which was our contribution to the year's celebration. The choir was thrilled that the sold-out audience at that concert truly enthusiastically approved of the review of 150 years of music by Canadian composers.


The Georgetown Choral Society is always happy to welcome new members.

No special talents are required. Just a love of singing and a willingness to put in the rehearsal time.

Acceptance is subject to an audition with the Artistic Director.

Come and get a first-hand experience of being part of the choir by attending a rehearsal, which are held in the Christian Reformed Church at 11611 Trafalgar Road, Georgetown, every Monday evening at 7:30 pm.

If you are interested in joining the choir, contact Laurent Thibault (905 877 7795) or Alyson Arsenault (519-856-0016)
