The Voice of Peterborough!

The Peterborough Singers invite you to celebrate our 25th anniversary year with song! Many wonderful concerts are in store.

Enjoy a festive beginning to the holiday season with Yuletide Cheer. The choir again welcomes the wonderful Venabrass Quintet and organist Ian Sadler, musical guests who make the holiday season joyous. We eagerly anticipate performing a newly commissioned piece for brass and choir, composed by one or another of the Venables!

The choir's signature Handel's Messiah will feature acclaimed soloists: Suzie LeBlanc (soprano), Erin Fisher (mezzo), Colin Ainsworth (tenor), and Andrew Tees (bass). The concert would not be complete without the remarkable talent of organist Ian Sadler, who will be joined by Paul Otway (trumpet) and Stan Ewing (tympani).

We have something special in store for you in February 2018. To celebrate our 25th anniversary year, choir members have chosen 25 of their favourite songs from the wide range of works and genres we have performed. We've also invited some of Peterborough’s finest vocal talents along with some “come from away” friends we’ve made along the way! Help us celebrate with our Greatest Hits concert!

Last but definitely not least is Mendelssohn's Elijah. Singing with the choir are two wonderful young soloists who "grew up" in the Peterborough Singers: Melody Thomas (soprano) and Adam Bishop (tenor). They will be joined by Marjorie Maltais (mezzo), who is known for "the fireworks of her remarkable coloratura," and Alex Dobson (bass), who is "praised for his musical and dramatic artistry on both opera and concert stages." Anyone who attended Alex's performance at the Singers' 2017 Mozart concert can attest to his talent and dynamism!

If you have never experienced a Peterborough Singers concert, what are you waiting for? There is something incredibly powerful about 100 voices singing in harmony together, and under the inspired leadership of Artistic Director/Founder Syd Birrell, the choir makes every performance a musical experience beyond compare.

We really hope you'll be able to join us this year - whether it's for the entire season or for one special performance - we know you won't be disappointed! Contact us now at 705.745.1820 or email
