Get set! Auditions for the Stairwell Carollers choir coming in August

Josée loves being a member of The Stairwell Carollers -- you would too!

               Our next round of auditions will be held at St. Columba church, 24 Sandridge, Ottawa, Ontario, consecutive Wednesdays Aug 21, Aug 28 and Sept. 4, 2013.

We are looking for Tenors and Basses. 

Sorry girls, try us next year.

The Stairwell Carollers sing sacred and secular renaissance, medieval and selected contemporary choral pieces a cappella. Our director, Pierre Massie, has written many original works and arranged countless others, so our repertoire is unique. He also sings with us, within the tenor section, which allows the whole choir to have a more intimate and emotional connection to our audience in concert.

The Stairwell Carollers began at Ottawa University, where I met Pierre in first year. My fate was determined that first Christmas season when he asked me to join him caroling in the residence stairwells.

Contact us  to set up your audition,  don't wait -- email Holly at infoATstairwellcarollersDOTcom :) Remove the AT and DOT and replace them with @ and .

The Stairwell Carollers rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 6:45 to 9:00 at St. Columba Anglican Church, 24 Sandridge Rd. (Manor Park).

  1. Have a wonderful summer. I am looking forward to receive the Christmas repertoire in July to start practicing. I hope there are lots of Pierre's arragements. Any new ones?
