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 marked the 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 got 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 are 7-9 pm on Monday evenings at St. Thomas’ Anglican Church in Belleville. BCS is always looking for events where their music will reach a wider community and offer two full concerts this season, with a ‘pay what you can’ entry fee. Saturday, February 18, 2023 and Saturday, May 13, 2023 @ 2 pm. St. Matthew’s United Church, 25 Holloway Street, Belleville.
BCS aims to share the joy of singing with as many in the community as possible to share the joys of choral music.
New members are welcome to join the Belleville Choral Society.
