Benefit concert

During the fall session we had in-person rehearsals with a smaller number of singers at St. Paul‘s Anglican Church, our rehearsal location. We worked on music for our 2021 participation in the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church's virtual Christmas benefit concert as well as other Christmas music. After a successful fall session we recorded a number of songs. You can watch these recordings on YouTube by clicking KCS YouTube channel

After our last winter concert in 2020, Covid-19 threw a wrench into our plans. Even though we could not rehearse together in our rehearsal hall anymore we managed to get some workshops going and virtual meetings via Zoom on our regular Monday evenings. We took part in a virtual concert in aid of the Heron Emergency Food Bank in 2020, which was broadcasted via YouTube during the Christmas season and raised over $10,000.

Thanks to our generous members we will manage to keep afloat. Stay safe, keep in touch and keep singing!

The Kanata Choral Society gratefully accepts donations in order to continue bringing choral music to the Community
