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:

Yes, fall is here with great fall colours—a special season to bring joy and anticipation. November and December will bring snow and celebrations.

We the choir Heimatecho have the wonderful job to bring music to all the functions over the year. On the 23rd of October we sang at the Austrian National Holiday Event.

Jeannie Park, our choir Director, keeps us busy with new traditional Christmas songs to showcase them. We will continue to be the musical ambassadors, contributing to the Austrian Culture with enjoyment and dedication.

On Friday December 10th, Choir Heimatecho will have its Christmas dinner at the club. At this time we will celebrate 40 years of dedication and commitment to these three special people: Claudia Bosch, Josie Janschitz and Heinz Franke. A big thank you from our choir members to them.

Our choir Heimatecho wishes everyone for the holiday season a Merry Christmas and a happy healthy New Year 2022. Music brings people together and makes us happy.
