The Bytown Voices is a non-audition community choir made up of more than 50 enthusiastic singers from across the Ottawa region. We perform two concerts a year, with additional outreach performances at seniors' residences and long-term care facilities.

Our history: In 1999 when the Glebe Singers became a women's choir, several of the members approached Ann McNamee, the accompanist, to form a new choir. This became the Bytown Voices. In 2004 Ann emigrated to Jamaica and Bob Jones succeeded her as choir director  and conducted the choir until May 2015. Brenda Beckingham was accompanist from September 2011 to May 2015.
