Kingston Choral Society
After more than 60 years, the Kingston Choral Society continues to occupy a special place on the Kingston music scene. Chorus master Ian Juby directs the 100-member, mixed-voice chorus composed of enthusiastic men and women who qualify by audition. The chorus master and choir are committed to challenging choral experiences. KCS searches out new music and new fields of work resulting in a wide repertoire ranging from early to contemporary music including oratorio and operatic works.
The Kingston Choral Society collaborates with the Kingston Symphony, BrassWerks, Orchestra Kingston and other music groups. In the spring and summer of 2014 Ian Juby, Clare Gordon and many KCS members performed, with the North Lakeshore Mass Chorus, ‘Till The Boys Come Home, produced by Michael Korn and Claire Shragge. This tribute to Canadians who served in World War I was presented in various cities in Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada. In the summer of 2015 the North Lakeshore Chorus traveled to Europe to perform the same program in England, Belgium, and France.
