Boys' Choir History
All boys who sing in the Children’s and Chamber Choirs participate in our Boys' Choir. This group was created to encourage music enjoyment among boys and to explore the wonderful sound of an all male ensemble. The Boys' Choir rehearses twice monthly on Monday evenings following the Children’s Choir rehearsal, and one Saturday per month fo for the junior boys prior to the Children’s Choir’s monthly Saturday rehearsal. The Boys' Choir has had the pleasure of singing at an Ottawa 67’s Game, where they had an opportunity to wear their distinctive Choir hockey jerseys.
