Who we are
The Guelph Male Choir was founded in October 1997 by Roy Connolly and Dr. Murdo McKinnon, motivated especially by their great love for choral singing in the Welsh male choir tradition.
As a non-auditioned community choir, membership is open to men of all ages and stages. The repertoire of the choir is chosen by the Director and now reflects a broad diversity of styles and genres; songs from Broadway shows, movies and operas, arrangements of folk songs, spirituals, Christmas carols and hymns.
The selections are prepared during weekly rehearsals (see below) and presented at two annual concerts - Christmas and spring.
There is a modest fee for each term - September to early December and January to early May. Proceeds from concerts are donated to Unicef Canada, the Guelph Kiwanis Music Festival and the Drop In Centre.
Choir rehearsals are held at Westminster St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, Victoria St N. just south of Speedvale in Guelph on Wednesday evenings 7:00 - 9:00 pm from the beginning of September until early May. The first rehearsal of the 2017 season is Wednesday January 11.
