What did the critics say? 

The strength of the choir overall was seen in their coordination and harmonizing. Each section flowed well into one another, and their epic power chords reverberated throughout the church’s stone walls."...... Click here for full review!

What is Bytown Voices? 

  • The Bytown Voices is a non-audition (i.e. no tests to prove your vocal competency) community choir 
  • Made up of more than 80 enthusiastic singers from across the national capital region (ON/QC). The choir is SATB: sopranos, altos, tenors and basses.
  • We also welcome children from ages 9 (grade 4) and up.
  • The only requisite to join is to have a love of music and singing.  
  • We perform two concerts per year, with additional outreach concerts at seniors' residents and long- term care facilities.
  • Masks are no longer required for practices or concerts but all choir members are strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated. 

    What do we sing??

    Bytown Voices sings a variety of repertoire from various centuries, styles, cultures, and degree of difficulty. As a non-audition and inclusive choir, our membership ranges from people singing in a choir for the first time to experienced musicians. Most importantly, new members become long-time members dedicated to the community.

Our artistic director, Joan Fearnley, is an engaging conductor committed to bringing out the best in each member. Her music choices are thoughtful and varied with something for everyone and she will send you home enriched, energized and humming a tune after rehearsal. Joan is supported by our excellent pianist (Carla Klassen), our music team associate (Devon Wastle-Thivierge), and our children's mentor (Mélanie Hartshorn-Walton), as well as a dedicated volunteer executive board and volunteers from the choir.
