Calling all singers!


Did you know that King's University College is home to three choirs - a chamber choir and two parish choirs?


The King's University College Chamber Choir is holding auditions this September. Experienced choral singers of all types welcome to audition. The choir, which consists at its core of King's students, faculty, and staff, will perform two major concerts and at special events at the College. Rehearsals take place on Thursday evenings. At the audition, you will be asked to prepare a song and to demonstrate range and sight-reading abilities.  

The parish choirs are non-auditioned and previous musical experience is not required. The role of these choirs is to lead music for the worshipping community at King's at the 10:30 a.m. (off-campus) and 5:00 p.m. (Labatt Hall) Eucharist. The 10:30 a.m. Choir is made up of people from the parish and King's community.  They rehearse each Wednesday evening. The 5:00 p.m. Choir is geared more toward students. We rehearse in Labatt Hall each Sunday at 4:00 p.m. 


Singing is a wonderful way to express yourself, to form community, and to inspire others. If you are interested in joining any of our choirs, please contact Janet Loo at 519-433-3491 ext. 4528 or
