Austrian Choir Heimatecho

The Austrian mixed Choir “Heimatecho” has been singing together since 1980 when a group of members of the Austrian-Canadian Society got together to rehearse some traditional songs for the Christmas party at the newly opened Austrian-Canadian Cultural Centre. Over the years 30 singers joined the choir, which performs at various club functions and also sings at senior homes and hospitals. New singers are always welcome to join the choir. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m.

Choir Report

Dear Friends and Members:

Spring is around the corner, and we sure are looking forward to seeing the snow disappear. Spring is a time to embrace life. Easter comes this year at the beginning of April.

Choir Heimatecho has their first performance on Thursday, April 6th at Trinity Lodge. We give the seniors a special enjoyable evening. We are grateful to share the beautiful folklore and traditional Austrian music. We are busy with new songs, with emphasis on music for the Heimatabend in September. Jeannie Park is our choir director and she keeps us happy and never tires of practicing with us. The universal language of music brings us all together to practice every Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Austrian Club.

We are looking for new singers. Come and share your love of music with us. We are proud cultural and musical Ambassadors for the Austrian Club. Our choir still has 21 dedicated members. We perform regularly at various cultural events, churches, weddings, birthdays and anniversaries, just to name a few.

A special performance is coming up for the Maifest on Saturday, April 29th at the Austrian Club and our choir Heimatecho will perform. Everyone is welcome to have fun and enjoy the evening with delicious food and dancing to the band Premium Akkord. Hope to see you there.

Happy Easter wishes with warm weather to all our members and friends. Stay healthy and have fun.

With best wishes,
Frieda Foidl
