Come Sing with the RRU Choir

Come Sing with the RRU Choir! Please feel free to come to the noon time sessions of the RRU Choir. All are welcome. No singing experience is required, nor is the ability to read musical notation.

These sessions are free of charge.

Our choral director, Denis Donnelly, uses imaginative and innovative ways of bringing out a variety of harmonies in a wide ranging international repertoire.

“In June of 2010 Denis was the recipient of the Herbert Drost Award, presented by the British Columbia Choral Federation, for lifetime achievement in his work in choral music. The RRU Choir has sung in English, SENĆOŦEN, Mandarin, French, Latin, Swahili, German, and a variety of African dialects. It would be wonderful to continue to learn more and collaborate across campus.
