United Voices Choir

A brief history:

Dunbar Ryerson United’s Voices Choir started as an outgrowth of the Sunday morning Chancel Choir at the former Dunbar Heights United. The choir was initially designed as a way to connect to people who love to sing, but were not regular attendees at Sunday services. Our first concerts were in 2009, and soon after presented special concert events at least twice a year. It was an opportunity to work on large sacred masterpieces together with an orchestra. As a result, this group has become especially attractive to amateur singers who are not currently connected to a church community, are looking for a recreational outlet, and are interested in singing sacred music at a high standard.

Who we are:

The Voices Choir, like many programs offered by the new congregation, are now evolving in significant ways. Because of our overwhelming growth since the merger of the Dunbar Ryerson legacy congregations, we have started auditioning our choristers, and we have brought the size of the choir down to about 45 for concert performances.

2018 Spring concerts:

We are now well underway with preparations for our 2018 spring concerts. We will perform on the evenings of May 11 and May 12. The performance will feature two works: Fauré’s Requiem and Morton Lauridsen’s magical Lux Aeterna, presented with our Chamber Orchestra.

Rehearsal schedule:

Rehearsals are Mondays | 7:00pm – 9:00pm at the W. 24th Ave and Collingwood St. location.
