Come Sing With Us!

We are an SATB community choir, and we welcome new singers. At the moment we are especially seeking Tenors, Basses and Sopranos; Altos are also welcome. We rehearse Tuesday evenings from 7:30-9:30 pm at Woodroffe United Church. During the month of September, we invite prospective new members to join us for open rehearsals, at which you can observe or join in and get a sense of how our choir works together. Our first rehearsal of the 2023 – 2024 season will be on Tuesday, September 12.

The ability to read music, and some choral experience (even if it was some time ago) are necessary. If you decide that you would like to join us, you will be given a voice placement test. A formal, prepared audition piece is NOT required. Come try us out!

If you are interested in joining us, please email nepeanchoir+auditions@gmail.com and check out the Join Us link above for more information.


Nepean Choir gathers and makes music on
 the unceded, unsurrendered territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin Nation, whose presence here reaches back to time immemorial. We aim to honour their tradition of song.

2023-2024 Choir season

After two seasons of virtual, hybrid, and modified rehearsals, Nepean Choir is pleased to have returned to in-person rehearsals this season.  We continue provide the option for remote participation if the situation requires it.  The well-being of our members continues to be our top priority, and we will continue to take precautions as we safely move closer to normal.
