The Town Singers of Carleton Place, Ontario, was established in 2007. The idea for a community choir was put forward by Gloria Baker in the summer of 2006. With Ivy Draper and then director
Kristine MacLaren on board, rehearsals commenced with a small group of singers in a member's living room in February 2007. St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church soon became the choir's
rehearsal and performance space.
The group is a non-auditioned four-part choir ranging from 75 to 90 voices. Our season runs from September to June, with performances in December and June. A smaller
group performs at various community functions and events.
The Town Singers range in age from 15 to 85. The group is currently rehearsing on Tuesdays from 7 to 9 pm at St. James Anglican Church, Edmund Street, Carleton Place.
