Welcome Back!

Welcome choristers past, present and future!

Our 2023 winter/spring term commences this Saturday January 14th, 10am, (but show early! Room open by 9:30 am) at Faith (formerly Ryerson) United Church, located at 842 Main Street East at the corner of Springer Ave. We will be meeting downstairs in the Assembly Hall. Enter through the beige doors on the Springer Ave. side. There is also an accessible elevator entrance at the orange door at the south end of the building and this elevator opens downstairs right into the Assembly Hall. Rehearsals will continue weekly (excepting Family Day and Easter weekends) including our dress rehearsal Saturday May 6th before our final concert Sunday May 7th. Please note that you will find detailed instructions regarding parking and public transportation at the foot of this email.

Term fees: are $150 per term, $10/session or PWYC. This term will consist of 15 sessions plus our term concert.

Mailing List Management

We attempt to keep everyone informed but are loathe to annoy anyone with a weekly email update if they don’t wish to receive one. Thus, we’ve organized our contacts lists in the following manner:

Winter/Spring 2023 list: You’ve registered for this term and fully expect to participate. You’ll receive our weekly e-newsletter and perhaps a few other messages as the need arises. Your registration automatically includes you in this list.

Non-active e-newsletter list: You can’t participate this term but are interested in receiving the weekly newsletter so you don’t lose touch. Contact hamiltonsings@gmail.com

Alumni: You don’t anticipate returning but are still an avid supporter of our efforts and would like to occasionally hear from us regarding upcoming concerts, fundraising efforts, and possible volunteering opportunities. Contact hamiltonsings@gmail.com

Most importantly, you MUST remember that our priorities are fun, sound, and community. We welcome all voices to our very special place and look forward to meeting you!

Warm regards,

Hamilton Sings Community Choir (HS!CC)
