"I have been a member of this fine show chorus since 2003. I was introduced to MLS by Arthur; we met at a Karaoke party and Arthur noticed I enjoyed singing. He invited me to a Monday practice, simply for my entertainment. I had no thoughts of joining, knowing that I didn't read music. However, Arthur assured me that not all members were music theory savvy. I very much enjoyed my session that Monday and after an audition, I was placed in the baritone section. I was definitely drawn into this high energy, enthusiastic singing group. It’s definitely a soothing and stress relieving activity, with a very sociable focus committed to having fun. I found memorizing the music to be good mental conditioning and the choreography to be stimulating. If you are thinking of a leisure activity that is both social and entertaining, well, come out to one of our Monday evening rehearsals at the Burnaby Lake Pavilion as a guest and see for yourself." - John
"I have been with the Maple Leaf Singers for seven years. I am passionate about singing and dancing; it fills a huge void in my life. As my background is in theatre in high school and university which still applies to our diverse array of performance pieces. It’s great group."- Pat
"I have been singing Alto with The Maple Leaf Singers off and on for 25 years. After a four-year break, I came back to sing in the Solid Gold 50th anniversary show and I'm so happy I'm back. The people are great, all my closest friends I met through the MLS, and I'm so excited for the new season under our new director!" - Mary Dale
"Singing with the Maple Leaf Singers is so much fun and such a stress reliever. No matter what issues I’ve been dealing with during the day, when I come to a rehearsal and start to sing, all worries and cares just vanish from my mind. I’ve been a member for nine years. I love the wide variety of music we do too and that we perform over 15 shows a year. It’s how we share our joy of music with others." - Glenora
"Singing with a group that sings really well is an uplifting experience. Performing is a real rush too. Bonus - singing is good for your health!"
"It's great having something creative outside of work - a space in the week where you are spirited to a different world."
"I enjoy the music. I enjoy the people. And, I enjoy entertaining our audiences. Singing with the Maple Leaf Singers has been my hobby for 35 years."
"After 18 years, I've made some very close friends; I can't imagine not being in the Maple Leaf Singers."
"I love to sing - I feel so energized to be part of a wonderful group of singers and entertainers. We work hard, but we have lots of laughs and fun each week preparing for our concerts."
"We have wonderful people as members of the Maple Leaf Singers. I've made great new friends (who are now old friends!)."
"I look forward to singing every week. Focusing on the music clears my head and energizes me, even after a tiring day. The singers are diverse in background, but we all have the same goal - to sing, to have some fun, and to use our gift to entertain others."
