Belleville Choral Society
A place to make great music in Quinte and experience the joy of singing!
The Belleville Choral Society (BCS), founded in 1959, is a volunteer community choir, founded on the belief that many types of music should be accessible to the community. The goal of BCS is to provide an environment where choral music is learned and performed for the enjoyment of its membership and that of the local community.
September 2022 brings the new Belleville Choral Society’s first rehearsal in over two and a half years. The Board of Directors and their new music director, Heather Christiansen are getting things in motion for the re-start of the season with fresh new music, thanks to the City of Belleville Arts and Culture Grant. Musical highlights include, I Can See Clearly Now by Johnny Nash, arr. by Larry Nickel, Both Sides Now – by Joni Mitchell, arr. by John Leavitt, After the War by Mark Sirett and Seal Lullaby by Eric Whitacre. Want to have fun learning and performing these songs?
Rehearsals will be 7-9 pm on Monday evenings at St. Thomas’ Anglican Church in Belleville, starting September 12. BCS is looking for events where their music will reach a wider community and will offer a full concert in February 2023, with a ‘pay what you can’ entry fee. BCS wants as many in the community as possible to share the joys of choral music.
