ABOUT THE CHOIR
RESOUND is Durham’s newest auditioned SATB choir for both younger and older adults representing diverse origins, cultures, music and life experience. We choose beautiful and moving classical choral works, enlivened with a touch of contemporary choral repertoire, to present an uplifting and compelling concert experience to a broad audience. We have two key mandates: excellence in choral performance, and meaningful community outreach.
We sing three concerts a year:
- A winter seasonal concert (late November);
- A choral masterwork concert (late March), to which we invite anyone who is passionate – or just curious – about singing, to join this grander-scale production (no audition necessary); and,
- A spring concert (mid-June), featuring a commissioned choral arrangement of the work of local student songwriters, as well as partnerships with front-line service organizations, in order to generate greater awareness and support for their work on issues that are important to the community (homelessness, youth mental health, human trafficking).
RESOUND rehearses every Sunday evening (7:30-10:00 pm) from September to June, at Northminster United Church in Oshawa.
If you’d like to become a RESOUND member, auditions are by appointment before each of the choir’s three semesters. Good sight-reading skills, or the ability to learn quickly by ear, are recommended.
