Celebrating its thirteenth season in 2018-2019, 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.
Highlights for the current season include a tour to Germany to participate in the Dresden International Children’s Choir Festival in April 2018. Plans for the coming year include another major tour in the spring of 2019.
If you like singing, Shumayela is for you. We sing all kinds of music and it's always fun!
Sing with us!
Shumayela's June round of auditions is now concluded. We will be posting sign-ups for fall auditions soon. In the meantime, you can complete the audition form to be added to a waitlist and notified when auditions are being scheduled.
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.
