The Bytown Voices is a non-audition community choir made up of about 50 enthusiastic singers from across the Ottawa region. In 1999 when the Glebe Singers became a women's choir, several of the members approached Ann McNamee, their accompanist, to form a new choir, which became the Bytown Voices. Since 2004, when Ann emigrated to Jamaica, the choir has been directed by Robert Jones. Our accompanist is Brenda Beckingham. We perform two concerts a year, with additional outreach performances at seniors' residences and long-term care facilities.
If you are interested in joining, please contact Robert Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org). The first rehearsal of the 2013-14 season will be on Tuesday, September 3 (the day after Labour Day) at St. Basil’s Church.
Fees for the fall term are $85, and $90 for the winter/spring session due to its additional length.
On Sunday, December 15 at 3:00 pm at Trinity United Church (1099 Maitland Avenue, just south of the Queensway), our special guests will be the Shiru Lach Choir (Ellen Asherman, conductor) as we present a joint concert that will include music for both Hanukkah and Christmas.
Our spring concert will be back at St. Basil's on April 27.
