Welcome to

Hamilton Sings! Community Choir

We are a non-audition, mixed-voice choir for adults and older youth. Our members may be new to singing or to choirs, or they may bring lots of musical experience. Everyone wants a fun and friendly place to make music together.

There is no audition! Choir membership includes healthy, functional voice coaching, and musical skills development.

Saturday Choir

Saturday’s Choral Connections

Sue Crowe Connolly and Hanna Bech Mathieson have prepared an autumn 2020 season of song, delivered to your home and desktop through Zoom technology. Though temporarily absent from our traditional rehearsal space of the Hamilton Boys and Girls Club, we’re delighted to take a virtual and vital place in your living room.

Some highlights of our 2020 autumn program:

  • Real connections with your music-loving friends
  • Focus on musical skill building at your own pace
  • Explore various musical traditions such as Quebec music history & culture
  • Dynamic instruction includes possible workshops led by local and international artists
  • Member access to instructional materials includes voice files and sheet music

Rehearsals commence on Saturday September 12th at 10:00 am and continue until Saturday December 5th. As usual, the first rehearsal is open to all interested individuals, after which registration will be closed to members only.

Our home, the Sherman Boys and Girls Club, is closed for the forseeable future. So we cannot rehearse there again until circumstances change.
On Saturday mornings from September to December, Hanna and Sue lead choir members in the Choral Connections sessions, with warmups, a sing-along, and some new music.
