The Peterborough Singers invite you to our 2023-24 concert season, which includes J.S. Bach’s St Matthew Passion, one of the most powerful choral works in the repertoire. As Artistic Director Syd Birrell quips, after thirty years of the choir’s existence, “if you stick around long enough you’ll get to experience the best, most loved oratorios in the choral repertoire, performed with some of Canada’s finest guest artists, right here in Peterborough.”

See below for details on the full 2023-24 season, and while you’re at it why not get your tickets now! (Note: If you buy season tickets you almost get a concert for free.) Tickets available here.
