Who We Are
Founded in 1994 through the collaboration of Dr. Gary Fisher and Mary Jane Price, former organist and director at St Christopher’s Anglican Church, Burlington Ontario, the Burlington Civic Chorale has brought outstanding choral music to Burlington, Hamilton and surrounding areas for over 25 years.
The BCC was honoured to commission for their twenty-fifth anniversary concert, 17 November 2018, Faith in Peace, a work by Canadian composer, Mark Sirett with lyrics woven from the texts of former Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson’s 1957 Nobel Peace prize speech.
Through its performances the BCC delights audiences with powerful choral music experiences with repertoire encompassing classical music from the 16th century to the present; folksongs; opera choruses and vocal jazz.
What is it like to sing with us? Let our singers tell you!
“The BCC Singers have been part of my life for nearly 30 years. I have found new friendships and gained a greater love and appreciation for music. During times in life when one needs mental and moral support, singing takes me to a higher place.”
“The Burlington Civic Chorale is an amateur chamber choir of adults from Burlington and neighbouring communities. We come from various walks of life, but have found one another through our shared love of music. We are proud to have sung for our audiences for over 25 years!”
