Founded in 1955, Menno Singers is a 45-voice, auditioned community choir based in Kitchener-Waterloo. While rooted in the thriving Mennonite community of KW, membership is open to all interested singers. Four regular concerts are offered each season with repertoire ranging from the Renaissance through the present day. Menno Singers also sponsors Mennonite Mass Choir every two years. Mass choir alternates performances of the Messiah at Centre in the Square with other works of the oratorio repertoire. The choir is pleased to announce its new artistic director for the 2017/18 season, Brandon Leis. He will continue the strong leadership of the choir as longterm director Peter Nikiforuk completes his 19 years with the choir.
