Our choirs

 


ARC’S 2022-23 Season…”I’ll Meet You There”

From a "Mad World" to "All Things New"

Transitioning from lockdowns and restrictions on virtually all aspects of life to a renewed sense of optimism and freedom to gather, “I’ll Meet You There” celebrates friendship, family, community and connection.

Sharing from our hearts

Coming together not apart;

Our spirits are strong

I’ll meet you there.

“I’ll Meet You There” is the title of a commissioned work by Dave Pierce, composed to mark ARC’s 20th Anniversary in 2022. As the culmination of the production, this exciting new work for mass choir will receive its debut.

Up2Something - Performing Choir

up2something Choir
Established in 2003, Up2Something is a diverse group of men and women who enjoy eclectic, fun and often challenging repertoire. 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, as well as "age and stage-appropriate" movement and choreography are used to enhance the music and bring their performances to life. 

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.
