Introducing Chorus Hamilton
Chorus Hamilton is a Registered Charitable Arts Organization and is one of Hamilton’s finest choral ensembles. Founded in 1968 our choir continues to grow and is now a 73 member semi-professional choral society. The ensemble performs a large variety of music from chamber music to the greatest large scale works in the choral repertoire, with orchestral accompaniment and world class soloists.
In the past, Chorus Hamilton has been invited to perform with the University of Guelph Symphony, the Brantford Symphony Orchestra, the Redeemer University Sinfonia and others. In addition to performing concerts throughout Southwestern Ontario, we have also collaborated with the McMaster University Choir and Fanshawe Chorus London.
