Did you know…

– During the pandemic, the Stairwell Carollers performed as a virtual choir on YouTube . Director Massie edited together the virtual concert from choir members’ video submissions. “Singing alone at home is nothing like performing for a live audience,” says Massie. “Now that we’re back to in-person rehearsals, it’s been gratifying to hear our voices come together in harmony again and enjoy the camaraderie and social interaction unique to a small choral ensemble.”

– The Stairwell Carollers are now in an active search for new voices with a focus on adding voices in their tenor and bass sections.

– In-person auditions will be held by appointment Wed January 31st at St Columba church.  Xmas Season startup is on Sept 6. 

– A solid voice, a good ear and a great attitude are all candidates need to qualify. Reading music is an asset but not a necessity.
