In 1967, during Canada's centennial celebrations, a dozen Whitby citizens, led by Joyce and Joe Wainwright, responded to the Federal Government's invitation to mark Canada's 100th birthday by forming the "County Town Singers". Today we number over 65 singers and continue to grow and evolve each year.
The choir's dedication to community service was established early in our history. Singing is great fun, but we also highly value the opportunity to contribute to the cultural fabric of Durham Region through our lifelong commitment to community service. We love entertaining our audiences, from small performances for seniors groups, service clubs and church fundraisers, to concert halls across Canada and Europe. We continue to grow and strive for choral excellence with a wide variety of repertoire that spans every genre and style.
We are a non-profit organization, donating proceeds and efforts to various social causes in Durham. We cover a portion of our expenses through revenues from membership fees, fundraising and tickets sales, but count on donations to help us manage the additional expenses of rehearsing and performing in this community.
We invite requests to perform at various types of private and charitable events. Why? Because we love singing and sharing musical joy with others! If you are interested in partnering in a fundraising concert with our choir, hiring us for your own event, or looking for entertainment for an organization you support, please visit our contact page to get in touch.
