We are extremely pleased to announce that Shawn Grenke will continue as our music director for our upcoming 2018-19 season!
Shawn took over as our interim director this year and brings with him an amazing amount of musical experience. He is accompanist to several of Canada’s leading professional choirs (the Elmer Iseler Singers, and the Amadeus Choir), Associate Conductor of the Amadeus Choir, and is Director of Music for the Eglinton St. George’s United Church in Toronto, and the Woodstock Fanshawe Singers. He has also displayed his incredible talent as accompanist for many of Achill’s performances over the past 10 years.
Achill is flourishing under Shawn’s direction this season and we have been filled with a renewed sense of energy, excitement, and passion for music as we prepare for our upcoming Christmas Fanfare concerts. Work is well underway for our spring concerts this April. Keep an eye on our website for an announcement about this concert coming soon.
Please join us as we embark on this new stage of our journey. The Achill Choral Society hopes to explore new vistas under Shawn’s direction while continuing our long tradition of musical excellence.
President, Achill Choral Society
