This choir was established in the 1950’s and is currently under the direction of Nancy Tapley and accompanied by Joy Anderson.
Over the years the Choir has presented hundreds of concerts ranging from benefits for the United Way, Ontario OSPCA, Support the Troops, The Wallaceburg Museum, the Salvation Army and others. They have also performed at Doors Open Chatham-Kent, at dramatic readings of “A Christmas Carol”, at the Festival of Trees as well as the opening ceremonies of an NHL Oldtimers’ Hockey Game. They were honoured to be part of the Ernie Haase singers concert at the Capitol Theatre in December 2012. They have sung many times at nursing and retirement homes to the great enjoyment of the residents and the staff. Over the years we have donated money to support youth choirs such as the Youth Voices of Kent and the Children’s Community Choir.
