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 permanent 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.
Rehearsals take place Tuesdays from 7 to 9 pm at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, 39 Bridge Street, Carleton Place.
The Kids Town Singers (KTS) is an offshoot of the adult choir for children from 8 to 15 years old. KTS rehearses from April to June, with one end-of-session concert.
