Theatre Ancaster Chorus
Ages 19 and over
The Theatre Ancaster Chorus is an adult SATB choral group (soprano, alto, tenor and bass), established in 2013.
Designed for experienced adult singers, the group brings excitement in musical choices, a chance for people to sing and learn together, and a new way to reach out to the community through music.
Led by Laura Fitzpatrick and accompanied by Monica Admiral, the choristers enjoy singing a variety of music from Broadway, jazz and American standards to pop, gospel and country. And, of course, seasonal favourites at the December shows.
