Will 2020 be the year you join a choir? Start the decade off with a (show) tune!
- Hello 2020! New music, new members, and a new decade! Save the dates: May 24 (Hunter River) and May 31 (Summerside) will be our first "roaring" concerts in the 20's and the theme is show tunes. A little opera, a little Oklahoma, Hamilton, Carousel, Fiddler On The Roof, Man of La Mancha, Les Miserables, and some Gilbert & Sullivan to top it off.
- We are currently accepting new members for the current term, so join us at Summerside Trinity United Tuesday nights at 7pm. No audition, just show up ready to sing! If you can't make it for our first rehersal on January 7, then you can still come on January 14 or even January 21. After that, you'll need special permission from our Music Director to join.
- High School students in Grades 11 and 12 who wish to join the choir can count up to 100 hours singing with the choir (at a rate of $5/hour) towards a post-secondary bursary through PEI's Community Service Bursary Program. Keep this in mind when planning for next school year!
- Our members also sing in a number of other choirs and participate in special activities throughout the year. Be sure to check out our Calendar Page for even more choral events!
Interested in joining us as a choir member? We are an open membership (no audition required!), mixed-voice community choir who welcomes new (and returning!) members at the beginning of each term to work towards an end-of-term concert. We perform two Christmas concerts in December and two spring concerts in May or June and may have extra events throughout the term. More information about joining the choir.
In 1978, Bill Leuty had a dream to start a community choir in Summerside, PEI, Canada. He was able to make this dream a reality, and in 2013 the 70-plus member Summerside Community Choir celebrated thirty-five years of choral music.
In 2014, our 40-member choir celebrated the 150th anniversary of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference with an all-Canadian "Together In Song" Concert Tour across PEI.
The Summerside Community Choir sings under the direction of Dr. Margot Rejskind.
