The Maple Ridge Chorus is made up of about 40 singers from across the community. We have openings in all sections, especially the tenor and bass sections.

The Chorus, operated by the Maple Ridge Choral Society, launched its fall 2018 season in early September.
We are rehearsing for our 2018 Christmas concert, which is scheduled for the Christian Reformed Church, 20245 Dewdney Trunk Road, at 3:00 pm on Sunday, December 9. Tickets are $15.00 at the door.
We are now accepting new members for the spring 2019 season, with rehearsals to start in early January. We rehearse every Tuesday evening at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church at 12145 Laity Street in Maple Ridge. Choral Society dues are $100.00, or $85.00 for seniors, plus a $5.00 annual membership fee, with a $25.00 one-time music fee for new members
We also welcome members who don’t want to sing, but would like to help us to organize events. Some of our tenors are women, so if you are a woman with a deep voice, come and try singing tenor – you may find you like it!
Our musical director is Aimee Oliverio, who served as are accompanist from 2010-2017, and as acting director in 2017. She replaces long-time director Andrew Wilhelm-Boyles, who passed away in August 2017 after a lengthy illness. Aimee is a gifted musician and an energetic presence.
Our practices are focused on achieving excellence. We look forward to hearing your voice enhancing our choir, and we are sure you’ll enjoy singing with others who share your enthusiasm.
The Maple Ridge Choral Society is governed by a Board of Directors that meets once a month. The responsibilities of the Board Members can be found in the MRCS By-Laws. We conduct our Annual General Meeting at the end of the spring season, a week or so after our concert.
