Georgetown Choral Society
We’ve been around since 1971 – a substantial accomplishment for any choir. The reason we are so successful is that we are a dedicated group of about 80 choristers who like to have fun while we give our audiences high quality performances. Our regular cabaret style events are a hoot, ranging from “down-east” music, roaring twenties “soirées”, or romantic “chocolate & roses” evenings featuring soloists from our own members.
Our Artistic Director, Christopher Dawes, is a very creative guy who is a serious musical scholar, a highly respected organist, and an all-round gifted jazz musician who can boogie with the best when you get him going on Celtic music. Read more about Christopher
We like to do popular lighter stuff from movie themes and musicals, etc, but we also perform serious classical works such as Mendelssohn’s Elijah, or Mozart’s Requiem, and of course, Handel’s Messiah. We have performed at Roy Thompson Hall, the Ford Center, the Mississauga Arts Centre, and other major venues and have also toured in Europe
From surveys of our audience we have received feedback such as:
“Appreciate your professionalism and obvious love of music”
“Warm friendly atmosphere at concerts”
“Thank you for your continued service to the community”
“Powerful large group sound”.
So come and join us either as a member or just to enjoy our concerts
