Rehearsals resume again on Monday September 11, 2023 at 7:15 pm in St. Paul‘s Anglican Church. 20 Young Road
in Kanata. Our first rehearsal is an open rehearsal where all people who like
to sing can come and find out what choral singing is all about. So come out and give it a try, we love
to see you!.
During the fall session in 2021 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

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
Please check our website in the future for our plans for the coming season.
In this stessful time you may want to listen to Nayeli (we knew her as Tzeitel) and Tonatiuh Abrego singing the Prayer.
Both have been soloists with the Kanata Choral Society early in their careers.
Both have matured greatly in their chosen profession and you will enjoy listening to their rendition of the Prayer
