Founded in 1952, Barrie's King Edward Choir began as a ladies' choir, taking its name from the school in which they practised. Under the direction of Jean Dobson, it blossomed into a group encompassing all voices. Past directors include Charles Woodrow, Morley Calvert and Barbara McCann. Today, under the direction of Floydd Ricketts, it is a dedicated group of 40 musicians willing to tackle any repertoire from Les Mis choruses to Orff, from gospel to Rossini. To joyfully mark the end of its 65th season, the choir will re-enact King Edward VII's coronation. Rehearsals for our three annual performances take place each Monday night. New members may audition with Floydd any time throughout the year; “Bring a Friend Night” is the third Monday in September. Hope to see you there!
