Chancel Choir

Chancel Choir: Group singing is an activity well suited to the disparate skill levels of its participants, and confers both health and psychological benefits. You don’t have to have a great voice to sing in a group.  According to a recent study, even if the quality of singing produced is undistinguished, psychosocial and cognitive benefits still occur, demonstrating that there really is benefit in just taking part”.  Dr. Des Colohan, from an article printed in The Guardian, March 2017
Calling all those who love to sing! The Chancel Choir, under the direction of Don Fraser, rehearses each Wednesday evening from 6:30-8 pm. New singers are joyfully welcomed! If you have questions or wish to let Don know you’ll be coming, please call him at 902-569-1604. We have 50+ seats in the choir loft. Might one be waiting for you?  Please join us! We’d love to sing with you at Trinity!

Hope you will join us!
