Placing FIRST in the OMFA 2010 and 2013 Provincials and SECOND in the 2010 FCMF Nationals, they are ranked amongst the best of Ottawa choirs and have provided $144,819 in scholarships and donations to local charities.
Director, Pierre Massie, has composed many original pieces for the choir, as well as creating lively and contemporary arrangements of traditional carols.
One of his original carols, “Mourning Dove”, caught the ear of Canada’s Dominion Carillonneur, Dr. Andrea McCrady, via YouTube. She performed “Mourning Dove” on the Peace Tower Carillon at 12:00 noon, and again at 3:00 pm, Monday Dec 17th. (http://stairwellcarollers.blogspot.ca/2012/12/pierre-massie-composition-mourning-dove.html) and again in her summer program for 2014. She continues to perform his music to this day.

Thanks to Lynn Saxberg, Arts editor of the Ottawa Citizen newspaper for the wonderful interview with Pierre which graced the cover of the Arts section on Saturday Dec 3rd!
This assured a successful Christmas concert season for the choir. Both concerts at Southminster United Church and St. Columba Anglican were packed (with a little space considering the pandemic)
Early reviews of the concerts state unequivocally that the masks did not get in the way of the sound.
What a relief to hear!
Our first Xmas concert in 3 years was about to happen! I was a bit concerned about the look of the masks with our cheerful Christmassy cloaks, but no worries we were still cute as buttons ( cloak buttons that is) .Looking forward to our final concert of 2022 – this Wednesday at 7:30, St. Columba church 24 Sandridge Rd. Ottawa.
