We are taking on new members for the fall 2020 season, which kicks off in September. We rehearse every Tuesday evening at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church at 12145 Laity Street in Maple Ridge. Rehearsals begin at 7:00 p.m.
Choral Society dues for the current year (2019-2020) are $125.00, or $100.00 for seniors over age 65, plus a $5.00 annual membership fee and a $10.00 music fee. There is a special student rate of $50.00 for full-time students in a provincial recognized program of study.The minimum age for joining the choir is 17.
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, 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. We are registered as a non-profit society under the B.C. Societies Act. We conduct our Annual General Meeting at the end of the spring season, a week or so after our spring concert.
