November 2020 Update

Etobicoke Centennial Choir’s past season came to an abrupt halt in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This ongoing health crisis has also resulted in the cancellation of in-person rehearsals and live concerts for our 2020-2021 season.

In this “season like no other,” we are focusing our efforts on supporting and sustaining our dedicated choral community through weekly virtual rehearsals on the Zoom platform. Led by our talented artistic staff – conductor Henry Renglich, accompanist Carl Steinhauser and five professional section leads — rehearsals include vocal training and provide a congenial format for our choristers to do what they love: singing beautiful music together.

Rehearsals are held in real time on Tuesday evening and recorded for later viewing.

Curious? New singers are welcome to join us. Ability to read music is essential. Please contact us by phone or email for further information.

We are also planning a spectacular return to singing and performing once restrictions can be lifted – stay tuned!

As always, we thank you for your patronage and support. We look forward to the time when we can once again gather to sing and experience the joy of music together.

Sincerely,
The ECC Board of Directors
Henry Renglich, ECC Music Director


Etobicoke Centennial Choir (ECC) is an inclusive choir that welcomes choristers, audience members and volunteers from all walks of life, backgrounds, identities and experiences. We offer an opportunity to learn, celebrate and perform a diverse repertoire, ranging from classical masterpieces to contemporary compositions and popular music. Choral music fosters joy and a shared camaraderie when individuals join voices together in song.

Background

Etobicoke Centennial Choir (ECC) evolved from the massed choir assembled for Etobicoke’s official celebration of Canada’s Centennial in 1967. Now celebrating its fifty-second year, the choir continues to enrich the cultural life of Etobicoke by performing an annual three-concert series. The ECC also sings at a variety of community events around southern Ontario.

Members share a love of choral music and remain dedicated to the pursuit of choral excellence. If you would like to get in touch, please follow this link to our Contact Us page.
