Ottawa Choir – The Stairwell Carollers
Many many thanks to Wes Smiderle for the beautiful article in the May/June edition of the Manor Park Chronicle. He got us the entire page!
I’m sure this will be a lot of help in our search for male voices to top up the choir for the coming Christmas season.
Thank you all for such a wonderful concert last night! The audience was
so appreciative of the performance. And most of all, thanks to Pete, for so many things — having the vision to create the choir in the first place and having so much artistic integrity that it gives us such a unique, well-balanced sound.
It’s not always that when a singer departs, she leaves a gaping hole in our hearts.
That rhymes! How fitting! Katherine style.
I’ll mostly miss her devilishly adorable sense of humour, her dancing with and miming out song lyrics, her fantastic crochet and knit creations, her beautiful photos – and, well, just HER.
We just got this lovely email from Gabriel (Gabe) Lewis-O’Conner, who recently did a weekend of choral workshops with the Stairwell Carollers choir here in Ottawa. It was a really inspiring event in preparation towards our first public choral concert since Christmas 2019!
Alle psallite cum luya, loosely translated as ‘ let us sing together, alleluia!’ is more than just the name of one of the pieces we sing this season. In fact, it seems to encapsulate how we feel these days for several reasons.
