A Word from Our Chair
What does it take to create a truly exceptional choral experience?
It takes a cadre of talented and committed singers. It takes an artistic director who can push this group to the limits of excellence. It takes world-class soloists and top-tier musicians. It takes a team of dedicated volunteers and staff. And it takes an audience that understands and appreciates how special this experience is.
The Peterborough Singers have all of this, and more. Our Artistic Director, Syd Birrell, founded this choir in 1993. He continues to mould a collection of over 100 choristers, all of them auditioned and skilled singers, into a unified explosion of sound. Many of Canada’s top classical soloists have performed with our group – some even started their professional careers with us.
And our audiences continue to show their love for us, both with glowing testimonials and by attendance at our concerts. (It is remarkable, for a community our size, to have 500 –1000 regularly attending
our performances. This would be equivalent to an audience of 10,000 –20,000 in Toronto.)
It is a great honour to be associated with the Peterborough Singers, and I thank you for being a part of this experience.
