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. Wherever the choir travels, they spread the joy of music-making and hope to bring communities together through song.
Recent highlights include a tour to New York City to sing at Carnegie Hall in the spring of 2019. This season, the choir will be sticking a little closer to home with a tour to southern Alberta in March 2020.
Shumayela rehearses Tuesdays from 7-9 PM at Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church (10815 76 Ave.)
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! We also provide many fundraising opportunities to help offset touring and other expenses.
