Walton is very blessed to have so many talented musicians in our community!  We have three choirs at Walton, involving approximately 80 members.

Chancel Choir

The Light Shines All Over the World – written by Marilyn Lightstone, arranged by Linda Fletcher

The Adult Choir rehearses every Thursday at 8:00pm from September to mid-June.

The choir sings an anthem every Sunday and most services also involve Adult Choir ensembles, duets, or solos.  The music ranges from Baroque to Contemporary and is always challenging and stimulating.  Throughout the year, the Adult Choir presents special music on Sundays such as Spirituals, favourite hymns, Christmas music, Easter music, Handel’s Messiah, as well as evening concerts and carol services.

The choir also performs one or two secular concerts each year. These have included: The music of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Gilbert and Sullivan, Cole Porter and George Gershwin, British Music Hall, “The Full Bronte” and other comedy shows.

The Chancel Choir was invited to be a part of VisionTV’s theZoomer Holiday special.


The choir enjoys regular fellowship “treat-nights” as well as a Christmas Party and a year-end barbecue.

Youth Choir

 

The members of the Youth Choir range from grades 6 to 12 and practice Thursday from 7:00 pm until 8:00 pm.  They sing 3 Sundays per month during our Sunday service.

They learn the basic skills of sight-reading and harmonizing through the various SA (Soprano/Alto) and SSA (Soprano/2nd Soprano/Alto) songs, most of which are contemporary. The choir also presents a spring concert and joins the Adult Choir in our Annual Carol Service.

Walton’s Youth Choir has sung in movies and as backup singers for 2 Eric Nagler recordings, both of which were nominated for Juno awards.

The choir has won two ‘First Place’ awards at the Peel Music Festival and many of its members have won individual awards as well.

Junior Choir

 

The Junior Choir (children in grades 1-5) provides an opportunity for younger children to participate in the music program at Walton.

They practice once a week on Thursdays from 7:15 pm to 7:45 pm and they sing an average of twice per month at the Sunday service.
