Welcome everyone!

We are delighted you have chosen to visit us.

The Cecilian Singers are a group of people who love to share music, with each other, but most importantly with YOU.

We perform concerts twice each year, at Christmas and in the Spring.  We hope you will join us at these celebrations of music. In keeping with the recommendations of the Provincial Government with respect to performances and the need for social distancing in order to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 virus on our community, our concert scheduled for April 5, 2020 at Zion Lutheran Church and our upcoming rehearsals have been cancelled. Many performing arts organizations and individuals in Saskatoon will be facing challenging circumstances in the next months. Please consider donating to these in lieu of what of what you would normally spend on concerts to ensure the health of our cultural institutions going forward. Thanks for you support in the past. Please check back with us for further updates on when our concert schedule will resume. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future!

We welcome singers of all kinds and from everywhere.  If you love music and want to share it with appreciative audiences, you have found your new home!  For more details check out the ‘Join Us’ link at the top of the page.

About

The Cecilian Singers is a community choir, based in Saskatoon.

We are NOT an auditioned choir; rather we are a community of people who love to sing.

And do we ever sing!  We sing everything from ancient Latin chants, classical choral works, folk music to show tunes and “Putting’ on the Ritz”!

We perform two concerts per season, one at Christmas and another in the Spring.

Concerts

Our Spring Concert scheduled for April 5, 2020 has been cancelled in keeping with the recommendations of the Provincial Government with respect to mitigating the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Please check back for updates on our performance schedule!

Our Christmas Concert last December was a great success! Here is our concert poster and a list of the advertisers who help us make these concerts possible.

History

The Choir was founded in 1996 by Michele Hupaelo and many of the original singers were drawn from among students in Michele’s voice studio.

The choir aimed to be an un-auditioned community choir, devoted to performing a wide range of repertoire, while making room to highlight choral music by Canadian composers wherever possible.

Graham Codling took over direction of the choir in 2011 and led it in many successful concerts, following on the tradition established by Michele.

In 2018, Colin Elliott assumed the role of conductor and continues the musical tradition established by earlier conductors.  The first concert under his artistic direction was performed on December 9, 2018 at Zion Lutheran Church in Saskatoon and we are now well into our second season with Colin as our director.
