Are there auditions or performances?
There are no auditions or performances! Our goal is to provide a safe and fun atmosphere where everyone, regardless of their ability, can experience the intellectual, emotional, and physical benefits of singing, along with the social rewards of singing in a group. We put no pressure on our members to audition, and the goal is to have fun without the stress of preparing for performance.
How do I join?
To join, all you need to do is show up! We're a drop in group, and always welcome brand new members. We encourage any new members to subscribe to our mailing list or follow our Facebook page so as to not miss any updates or info.
To subscribe to our mailing list, visit out Contact section. We send out an e-mail prior to each session with details, song list, and the lyrics attached. You can also like/follow our Facebook page here. A Facebook post is always created for an upcoming session which will have all the details (i.e., date, time, location, and song list), as well as a link and reminder about where to find the digital lyrics to download.
Otherwise, all you need to join is a love of singing, in or out of tune! Doors open at 6:30pm. Arriving 10-15 minutes before we start at 7pm will give you lots of time to pay (there is a fee of $10 per session, cash only), get settled, make sure your water bottle is filled, and mingle with our other members before we start singing.
How often are the sessions?
Our sessions are every two weeks on Tuesdays. We start at 7pm, and the session is an hour and a half long, ending at 8:30pm. Please see our Session Calendar section for a full calendar of the specific dates. If you're not on Facebook and want friendly reminders about our sessions, please subscribe to our mailing list! We send a reminder e-mail with details about our theme and song list a few days before each session.
Where do the sessions take place?
We meet in the Sanctuary at Trinity United Church, located at 1099 Maitland Ave.
- If you are coming from the Queensway in either direction, exit at Maitland and go North. The Church will be on your left, and there is a set of lights to turn into the parking lot.
- If you are coming south down Maitland, the Church will be on your right, and you can turn into the parking lot at the lights.
