The choir was co-founded in 1992 by Dale Wood and Lois Fraser. All styles of music are appreciated and the emphasis is on FUN!
The Georgetown Children’s Chorus was formed in 1992 by A. Dale Wood and Lois Fraser. Over the past 25 years, the choir has performed at The Mississauga Living Arts Centre, The Ford Theatre in Toronto and many local venues. The choir performs two major concerts, every Christmas and Spring.
The choir is proud to join The Georgetown Choral Society in presenting an annual Celebration of Peace service every November. Fond of travelling, the choir has performed in Ottawa, Whistler, Holland, Belgium, France, England and Wales.
Thanks to the leadership of Dale Wood and Lois Fraser thousands of children have increased their musical skills and had great fun in the process.
The goals of the choir remain the same as in the past 25 years…have fun, learn challenging music, make friends and entertain audiences.
