Nepean Choir

Bring harmony into your life in Ottawa!

New Singers Wanted!

We are an SATB choir, and we welcome new singers. At the moment we are especially seeking Tenors, Basses and Sopranos, and Altos are also welcomed. We will be holding several “Open Rehearsals” during our regular weekly rehearsal times, starting on Tuesday, September 13, 2022 at Woodroffe United Church, at which you can observe or join in and get a “feel” for how our choir works together.

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

Sing with Us!

Are you looking for a choir in Ottawa? Nepean Choir is up and running for our 2021-22 season! We have been holding a mix of small group live rehearsals and online Zoom rehearsals since our season began in September, adapting as the public health guidelines have changed through the year.

The choir has been holding rehearsals at Woodroffe United Church when guidelines permit, while simultaneously hosting a Zoom meeting rehearsal for those unable to attend in person. We have established stringent health and safety guidelines, but can also accommodate fully virtual attendance. 

We will be holding several open rehearsals at the beginning of the second half of our season, where potential members could attend to get a peek at how we work together.  If you are interested, we periodically hold auditions for new members.

The ability to read music, and some choral experience, are necessary. Prospective new members will be invited to attend several open rehearsals, live and/or virtually. Then, if you would like to join us, you will be given a voice placement test. A formal, prepared audition piece is NOT required.
