Music Ministries

The Choir

The first priority of the Choir at All Saints' Church is the enhancement of the liturgy at both the 10:30 Service on Sundays and at special services throughout the year. The Choir sings a wide variety of music in differing styles, from plainchant to contemporary settings of the Eucharist.

Syd Birrell is the Director of Music and Organist at All Saints'.

For more information contact Director of Music Syd Birrell through the church office at 705-876-1501.

Choral Scholarships

The Choral Scholar programme, supported by the Heritage Trust, provides a very valuable outreach to the community by offering bursaries to young people in exchange for the contribution of their talents to the service of the church. These young people often stay with All Saints' after their scholarship period.

Choral Scholarships are offered to high school students who, after passing an audition, are admitted to the Choir. The recipients are young people committed to singing and with a fair background in music. At the conclusion of the school year each scholar receives a scholarship in support of further studies. For more information contact the church office.

Our wonderful Choir - Thanks for all the wonderful music!
