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 third season with Colin as our director.

In March of 2020 in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic the choir determined it was not safe for us to complete our Spring season, and the concert scheduled for April of that year was cancelled. While we await the safe return to a regular rehearsal and concert schedule, the choir continues to get together virtually to take advantage of the educational and social opportunities that technology offers us to continue to grow as a community and as singers.
