The Maple Ridge Choral Society has been part of the Maple Ridge community for over 50 years. We enjoy singing an eclectic mix of music – classical to folk to sacred, with popular tunes thrown in for good measure, and incorporating a variety of languages.
The choir sings in four-part harmony: soprano, alto, tenor and bass. Our more than 40 members are men and women of all ages, but we have one thing in common – we love to sing!
We’re always looking for new members. Send us an email through the “Contact Us” page on this site and we’ll answer any questions you have. You can also contact us through the following email address: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our director is Aimee Oliviero. She replaced Andrew Wilhelm-Boyles on his death in August 2017 after serving for several years as our accompanist and more recently as our assistant conductor.
Choir members automatically become part of the Maple Ridge Choral Society, a provincially-registered society. The Choral Society is a member of the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Arts Council and the BC Choral Federation.
The Choral Society launched its 2017 fall season on Tuesday, September 5. We rehearse at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church at 12145 Laity Street in Maple Ridge. Our annual Christmas concert is scheduled for Sunday, December 10 at 3:00 p.m.
We will accept new singers for our spring season starting in January. You are welcome to try us out for two or three practices before you commit.
Registration for new or returning members starts at 6:30 (that’s for anyone not registered last spring). Practice begins at 7:00 p.m., as do all rehearsals through the year.
Choral Society dues for 2017-2018 (to June 2018) are $100.00, or $85.00 for seniors, plus a $5.00 annual membership fee, with a $25.00 one-time music fee the first time you join.
