Calling interested women choristers ... !

This week, practice will be held Thursday, March 9, 2017, AND Friday, March 10, 2017, 7:30 pm at the Sisters’ Provincial Home, 5 Austin Terrace. For any who haven’t been here, before...

... Notice on the map (click above), the nearest main intersections for drivers are Bathurst/Davenport, or St. Clair/Bathurst. The map outlines the nearest subway routes from St. Clair West station (in red) or Bathurst station (in blue). For the latter, from the Bathurst station, take the BUS northbound, and get off at Nina, not Austin Terrace, so you won’t have to walk up-hill.

The following practice will be Sunday, March 12, 2017, at 1:15 pm, at ST. DEMETRIUS PARISH CHOIR ROOM. Some may not know where that room is... Go to the hall, under the church, and find a door on the left of the kitchen (as you face the kitchen), and follow the corridor to the right.

There WILL BE OTHER CHANGES LIKE THIS THROUGHOUT MARCH... Please keep on top of this. (If this page looks too static, email me. The webSister may need a nudge!)


Interested in singing liturgical music? Do you have choral experience?

We are looking for interested female choristers within reasonable travelling distance to Toronto, to learn and possibly record a composition of the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, as a project to celebrate the 125th Jubilee of the founding of the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate. The composition, by Sr. Christine Dudych, SSMI, is written as variations on a theme by the late Sr. Juvenalia Kaniuk, SSMI, honouring our foundress, Blessed Josaphata Hordashevska, SSMI. The work had been sung in excerpts only, at our Annual Marian Pilgrimage in Ancaster, ON, in 2012, but never in its complete form.

The range of the work is from Eb below middle C to high G. A sample of the Отче Наш may be heard on this page, in any of the clips. (Note: You will hear strings, and then vocal.)

Interested singers may contact Sr. Christine by email, by clicking the emblem below or emailing christinedudych@gmail.com. Please include your:

Singers may be asked to arrange a private audition with Sr. Christine. For either audition or practices, DO NOT USE ANY SCENTED PRODUCTS! Sr. Christine has fragrance sensitivities. Other choristers may also have. It is a standard practice for choristers to not used fragrances of any sort.
