In existence for over forty years, the Carleton University Choir is a large choral ensemble of as many as 90 voices. The choir is open by audition to all Carleton students, members of the university community and the general public. The choir presents two major public concerts during the academic year. These concerts showcase a variety of large and small scale choral works and frequently feature orchestra and soloists.
The Carleton University Choir will be moving to a new time and venue in September 2019 and will be rehearsing at Dominion Chalmers on Wednesday evenings from 7-10 p.m. The choir extends an invitation to all students, faculty, staff and community members who would like to audition. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. (The Audition Information page will be updated and available from here soon!)
Our 2019 Spring concert was entitled Sonic Splendour, and held on April 6 at Dominion Chalmers. The concert featured a variety of works chosen by choir members including pieces by Erik Esenvalds, Dan Forrest, Z. Randall Stroope and Gabriel Fauré.
The Carleton University Choir is directed by Laurie Hamilton, with accompanist Joanne Moorcroft. See Laurie and Joanne’s bio page.
