Founded in 1952 by Jean Dobson, Barrie’s King Edward Choir today is a group of 50 dedicated musicians encompassing all voices, striving to present a repertoire that is broad and engaging to both chorister and audience: recent years have seen performances of works by Britten, Mozart, Bernstein, Vivaldi, Mark Sirett, Stephanie Martin, Imant Raminsh and Ruth Watson Henderson, along with offerings of Renaissance motets, Spirituals, folk songs and show tunes. The choir frequently collaborates with other artists and groups, and enjoys community sing-outs. Rehearsals for our three annual performances normally take place Monday nights, and new members are welcome at any time! We are under the direction of interim conductor, Leanne Edwards, with Dan McCoy as accompanist. While our rehearsal and performance activities are now on hold until at least the New Year, KEC continues to plan for a new season and we hope to see you in 2021!
