The Achill Choral Society began as a community choir in 1982, drawing members from an area northwest of Toronto. We gather Wednesday evenings to rehearse repertoire. Our membership is around 85 and we are a mixed, auditioned adult choir. Each Christmas and spring, we perform concerts in the churches and halls of our communities, including Alliston, Beeton, Bolton, Bradford, Caledon, Caledon East, Orangeville, Shelburne and Tottenham. We are led by A. Dale Wood. His lifelong musical career also includes directing the Georgetown Choral Society and Georgetown Children’s Chorus, as well as teaching lessons in piano, voice, organ and composition. Thanks to the commitment and vision of our director, the choir maintains an excellent standard of performance, attracting guest soloists and accompanists of the highest calibre.
