Sharing Joy Through Song!

 

Come and Be Moved

We perform twice yearly, at Christmastime and in the spring.  We pursue a varied and challenging repertoire that includes traditional Christmas carols and folk songs, classical masterpieces, show tunes and pop music. Recent concerts include Brahms’ Requiem, John Rutter’s Magnificat. Will Todd’s jazzy Mass in Blue, Broadway favourites, traditional Celtic songs and Paul Winter’s Missa Gaia.

An antidote to the stresses of life.

Performances

In the Heart of the World

Our 2019 Spring concert is filled with wonderful choral music that will both calm and stir your soul. The centrepiece is Mozart’s Coronation Mass in C major.
We’ll be singing other works, including classical as well as more modern and popular choral works. Accompanying us will be a piano, a string quintet, and four vocal soloists.

Who We Are

The Achill Choral Society has been fostering local singers and presenting annual concerts for more than 35 years. We are a mixed voice, auditioned, 70 member choir composed of singers dedicated to becoming better musicians and delivering sparkling performances to our communities.

We are delighted to have Shawn Grenke as our Director. We admire the fresh and spirited conducting approach that Shawn brings to Achill.

Do You Love To Sing?

We gather each Wednesday evening, starting 2019 January 09, at St. John’s Anglican Church (Highway 9, 3 km east of Orangeville) to rehearse our repertoire for the coming season’s concerts. If you love to sing, please contact us. Rehearsals will be open again in September. Acceptance to the choir is subject to an audition later in January with our choir director.
