Elmer Iseler Singers 43rd Season

The Elmer Iseler Singers have been working hard to share choral music during this difficult season as we are not able to meet in person. In our last season we developed our YouTube Channel and Instagram feed. We also moved our educational mentorship program to a virtual setting, beginning with coaching The VIVA Chambers Singers on Handel’s “Messiah” in October 2020 and look forward to continuing this program in November 2021.

We will continue to update this page with our next virtual programs and videos.

As we move into 2022, we look forward to returning to live musical performances, world premieres, community workshops, and educational activities throughout the GTA, around Ontario, and across Canada.

Thank you so much for your constant and caring support of the Elmer Iseler Singers.
