The Oakville Choral Society has been part of the Oakville community since 1960 and is the longest running choir in Oakville. The OCS is a non-profit cultural organization, a non-audition choir, 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 50 + 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 (2 concerts) and April/May (2 concerts). The Chorus is often joined by professional soloists and orchestra. The OCS also enjoys positive partnerships with other musical organizations in and outside of Oakville, and welcomes partnerships. Please see our “Concerts” page for details of our upcoming season.
Rehearsals are held at Chartwell Church, at 228 Chartwell, in Oakville from 7:30 pm to 9 pm Tuesdays. See the Join our choir page for more information about how to join the choir or call 289-430-0755. 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 Oakville Arts Council, The Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Please see our sponsor page for acknowledgment of our generous sponsors.
