The Burlington Civic Chorale is a mixed-voice community choir formed in 1994 through the collaboration of founder Dr. Gary Fisher and Mary Jane Price, former organist and music director at St. Christopher’s Anglican Church, Burlington, Ontario.
We rehearse and perform at St. Christophers Anglican church in Burlington, at 622 Guelph Line. Click for a map here (opens google map in new tab).
2016-17 is our twenty-third season! We couldn’t have done it without some help along the way: grants from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the United Way, the Toronto Foundation, and the former Halton Healthy Foundation; our loyal patrons and members; and local businesses who support us generously.
Interested in singing with the BCC? Please contact Gary Fisher at 905-632-2085 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a meeting so we can have a vocal assessment to determine what is the best route for both the BCC and you, the singer. What are your strengths and weaknesses as a choral singer so we can obtain the best fit?
Our next concert is on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
