Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the OCS Spring concert “Considering Matthew Shephard” has been cancelled, along with the documentary screening scheduled for 1 April at Film.ca cinemas. The OCS has also suspended its practices for the Spring season. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause but it is in the best interests of recently implemented safety and health measures regarding the coronavirus.”
The Oakville Choral Society has been part of the Oakville community since 1960 and recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. The OCS is a non-profit cultural organization whose aim is the promotion of choral singing and music appreciation in the community. We welcome members from Oakville and surrounding communities.
The OCS is directed by David Bowser, who has a wealth of talent and experience. The 80-voice Chorus performs a large repertoire of the world's finest and most loved music. The Chorus possesses a true passion for singing and performing, and maintains a commitment to serving the community culturally.
Performances are held in December and April/May. The Chorus is often joined by professional soloists and orchestra. The OCS also enjoys positive partnerships with other musical organizations such as the NYCO Symphony Orchestra. Please see our “Concerts” page for details of our upcoming season.
Rehearsals are held at St. Aidans Anglican Church, 318 Queen Mary Drive, Oakville, from 7:45 to 10 p.m. See the Join our choir page for more information about how to join the choir or call 289-351-1574. There is a fee to join but all the music is loaned to you from our library at no cost.
The Chorus gratefully acknowledges grants received from the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Oakville Arts Council.
