University of Ottawa Choir

A bilingual choir affiliated with the School of Music

Please join us as a Friend of the Choir.

This year we have seen our world change. Following the cancellation of our spring 2020 concert, our activities have resumed, but in radically different form.

Our weekly rehearsals, which are virtual, are augmented by workshops with guest choral specialists, also delivered electronically. The choir continues to learn and to refine repertoire in preparation for virtual performance, with the eventual aim of being ready to stage concerts in person when the opportunity returns.

Adaptation to the changed circumstances does not come without financial implications. While every effort is made to minimize expenses, we continue to incur significant costs for equipment and for technological and coaching support. Your assistance as we make our way through this difficult time would be gratefully received.

We therefore invite you to join the Friends of the Choir program or, if you are a current member, to renew your existing support. The benefits to being a Friend include:

  • a tax receipt from the University of Ottawa for your donation;
  • the knowledge that you are helping to enrich our wider community; and
  • the satisfaction of providing support for a long-standing tradition of choral music at the University and in the National Capital Region.

All contributions will be gratefully received and acknowledged on our website.

To make a contribution, please visit Friends/Cercle or send your donation by cheque, payable to the University of Ottawa Choir, to:
