The Bel Canto Chorus is celebrating its 40th season of making music

The Bel Canto Chorus Seeks Former Members

The Bel Canto Chorus is celebrating its 40th season of making music and performing for the Greater Sudbury area. In honour of this milestone the choir is holding a Gala Dinner and Fundraiser on February 26, 2016 at 6:00 pm at the Holiday Inn, Regent Street. Funds from this event will support the choir in sharing their music through free mini concerts at seniors’ residences and other pro bono engagements, as well as sponsoring music awards and bursaries.

The choir’s director, Pamela Teed, also a member of the organizing committee for the gala states, “We’re inviting past members to join us for a wonderful walk down memory lane. Former directors will be there, and we anticipate a joyous evening of celebration and song.” Anyone who loves music is welcome to join in the festivities, whether or not they’ve ever been a member of the choir.

The funds raised from this event will assist the choir in providing its regular outreach to the community. “Our choristers thoroughly enjoy our annual mini-concerts at seniors’ residences in the area early in June, and they take great delight when we are invited to perform at locations such as Daffodil Terrace and the Vale Hospice,” says Teed. “We rehearse for 8 months of the year, but when our concerts are over, many members miss the opportunity to sing! These pro bono mini concerts are a great way for members to share their love of music with those who aren’t in a position to attend our full concert. It’s one of many ways we are happy to give back to the local community that has supported us for four decades.”

Any donors interested in contributing to this worthy cause, or those interested in buying tickets may check the organization’s website at, the Gala Facebook page at through Pamela Teed or Irene Nizzero.

The Bel Canto Chorus offers four public performances annually – two in December and two in May, performing a wide variety of musical styles, including sacred, classical, modern, folk, Broadway, in order to appeal to a cross-section of the community. Concerts typically feature guests such as Sudbury Secondary Choirs, Cambrian Youth Orchestra, KampanaHandbells, providing opportunities for talented local voice students to be spotlighted. Each year, the choir funds an award for vocal performance at the Sudbury Kiwanis Festival.

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.

Currently, the Sudbury working group is on pause, due to a lack of members.  If you are keen to take on the challenge of creating and supporting local grassroots media, please get in touch.

Contact us at or follow us on Facebook.

If we become active again, we encourage you to support local grassroots media by:

  • Getting a membership. Membership fees are intended to pay local writers for local content and support emerging writers.  Membership forms are here
  • Submitting content. We are able to pay for a limited number of strong local pieces.  Contact us to pitch an idea, or for story ideas.   See our Editorial Policy here.  We encourage local grassroots groups to submit content about their work, issues and events.
