Making Music Together for Over 25 Years
Our choir has been in existence since the mid-1990’s. For the first 10+ years, it was part of the Okanagan College Continuing Education program. During this time, the operations of the choir were supported by the college, our founding conductor Leroy Weins, and a volunteer committee.
In late 2006, we were approached by the Kelowna Community Music School to become part of their organization. Our choir remained with KCMS until the summer of 2007.
With strong support from our volunteer committee and our members, we were incorporated as a non-profit society in September of 2007. Leroy Weins stepped down as Artistic Director and Conductor in 2014 after the 20th-anniversary concert. Susan Skinner is the current Artistic Director and Conductor.
The continued success of our choir rests with our director and accompanist, board of directors, and the many members who generously share their time and talents.
The Kelowna Community Chorus is characterized by its friendly atmosphere (newcomers are always welcome) and the challenge of pushing the limits of our musical ability forward every year.
Chorus members are united by their love of good music of all genres, enjoyment of being able to sing together, and appreciation of our director and accompanist for their inspiring talent and dedication.
