SHUMAYELA

[shoo-mah-YEH-lah]



Shumayela, a choir for treble and changing voices, continues to expand its horizons, develop its membership and satisfy a variety of musical tastes. The choir has toured throughout British Columbia and Alberta, performed in Ottawa at the Unisong festival for Canada Day, and in May 2016 the group was featured at the prestigious biennial choral conference for Canada, Podium, right here in Edmonton.

Recent highlights include a tour to New York City to sing at Carnegie Hall in the spring of 2019, and then a performance at the Alberta Children's Choir concert this year.  Wherever the choir travels, they spread the joy of music-making and hope to bring communities together through song.

If you like singing, Shumayela is for you. We sing all kinds of music and it's always fun!

Sing with us!

Shumayela is seeking singers for the coming 2022-2023 season!


Auditions are like a friendly mini voice lesson: no experience is expected or required. We will make you feel as comfortable as possible and we're excited to meet you! 


Shumayela rehearses Tuesday evenings from 7-9 PM at St Paul's Anglican Church (10127 145 St). 

COVID safety measures will be adjusted through the season according to current pandemic conditions. 

Please note that bursaries are available, and we make every effort to ensure that financial considerations never preclude a qualified singer from being part of the choir!
