up2something Choir
Established in 2003, is a diverse group of men and women who enjoy eclectic, fun and often challenging repertoire. Starting each fall, this non-auditioned mixed choir offers those with and without choral experience or the ability to read music a place where they can enjoy the camaraderie of others with similar interests. Costumes, staging, and age and stage-appropriate movement and choreography are used to enhance the music and bring their performances to life. A popular Christmas production and season finale provide opportunities for family and friends to share in the choir's achievement. An annual Talent Show offers an outlet for those wishing to perform as soloists, duets and small ensembles.
 
Infused into every 
performance is a rich and diverse repertoire, often extravagant costumes, and a healthy dose of humour. The incorporation of choreography and theatrical elements makes for a fun experience for performers and audience alike. Repertoire covers a diverse range of genres and styles and affords an abundance of creative opportunities. We hope you will join us for our 2019 Season for The Pursuit of HAPPiNESS!

something lite - Spring

something lite
Now in its eighth season, Something Lite is something different – a perfect combination of great music and great people! Every Wednesday evening, from September through May, we get together to enjoy a variety of music – country, pop, rock, Broadway, and more – and good company. Whatever your musical background, here’s a place where you can immerse yourself in the enjoyment of singing without the pressure of performing. 

ARC’s choirs are committed to awakening, nurturing and sharing the magic of voices in harmony. Something Lite is no exception - offering singers of all ages and walks of life a place to develop musical skills, enjoy the benefits of recreational singing, and sharing the joy of making music. Every rehearsal is fun, fresh and leaves you feeling fine!

(check back in July to register for Fall 2019)

something christmas
On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a new choir, friends, and community! On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a fast-paced choral season, and a new choir, friends, and community! We could go on for all twelve days but will refrain! 

One of the highlights of ARC’s season is the excitement and feeling that comes with sharing the magic of voices in harmony at Christmas time. Whether it be with one another each week at rehearsals, at Trinity Lodge with their residents, or with our friends and family at show time, the light and joy of Christmas are thick in the air all season long. If you are looking for a rich and diverse community of non-auditioned women to sing with and expand your musical abilities you have found the right place. Join us for laughter, snacks, and refreshments that give Pinterest a whole new name, an ugly Christmas sweater fashion show and Christmas Cabaret in our Something Christmas 2018 Season! 

Rehearsals
Thursdays from September - December, 2019 
7 - 9:30 pm @ Altadore Baptist Church 

Performances
