Cedar Park United has one of English Quebec’s largest volunteer church choirs with over 25 singers.
The CPU Adult Church Choir sings at all Sunday morning services from September to June, and is renowned in the community for its annual Christmas service of sacred music “Christmas Choir Celebration” with anthems, readings and sing along carols, complete with a very hospitable reception. This year, the free-will offering collected at the “Celebration” on December 10 at 7:30 p.m. will go to assist the work of “Volunteer West Island”.
Throughout the year, we sing mostly the music of contemporary composers, and on occasion works from as early as the Renaissance period. Regardless of style, we sing music with words that are relevant in today’s world.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced singer there is a place for you in the choir. Many of our choir members are also active in other choral ensembles while others focus on church music; Their training may range from highly trained to those who have never taken a voice lesson. Those who cannot read music are assisted by those who do.
Rehearsals are not only a time of musical learning, but of fellowship as well. Practices are held every Thursday evening 7:30-9:30 PM and Sunday morning at 9 AM before Sunday service. Each rehearsal begins with a vocal warm-up. New choristers may join the choir at anytime during the year, but must first get in touch with the music director. Whether you would first like to observe a rehearsal, or if you have already made the decision that you want to sing in the Cedar Park Adult Choir, contact the director. Either speak with Douglas Knight after any church service in the community hall or write to him directly on the “Contact Us” page.
