Sing with Etobicoke Centennial Choir
Etobicoke Centennial Choir (ECC) is an adult mixed-voice (SATB) community choir that welcomes choristers from all walks of life, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, gender identities and traditions. New singers are always welcome! We are a friendly, engaging group of people who love music and the joyful, life-affirming experience of singing together as one.
Prospective choristers are encouraged to attend one of our Open Rehearsals, held in early September and January, for the opportunity to sing with the choir, meet the conductor and explore whether ECC is a good fit. Interested singers are always welcome to attend any rehearsal.
New singers complete a vocal audition with the Music Director to assess their vocal abilities and assign voice parts. The ability to read music is a strong asset and is highly recommended to meet the rehearsal and repertoire demands.
Rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:45 pm, at Humber Valley United Church in Etobicoke. For more information, email Julie Lautens, Membership Chair, at [email protected] or call 416-433-5495.
Etobicoke Centennial Choir also welcomes non-singing members who want to support choral music in the community and would like to be involved in our organization. Associate members may serve on the board of directors, assist at concerts, special events and fundraisers during the season, and participate in ECC’s Annual General Meeting, where their unique perspective and input is valued.
Board of Directors
ECC’s Board of Directors is a dedicated group of volunteers that works collaboratively to manage, guide and develop the choir, in consultation with the Artistic Director. Meetings are held monthly, currently on a virtual basis. We are currently seeking to fill the position of Treasurer, and actively seeking new board members from the community who would be interested in helping to support a community arts organization. Please contact Greg Pimento, ECC President at [email protected] or call 416-433-5495 for further information.
