Registration for the upcoming Winter Term will be at Trinity Lutheran Church (419 Ave E North) in Saskatoon at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, January 8th 2019. This term, the Eclipse Choir will be featuring music from the 1980’s. New members welcome and encouraged to join this great group of fun, supportive singers. Hope to see you out there!
Christmas is the most wonderful time for celebrating favorite memories of past holiday seasons and for creating new memories to treasure in coming years. Get into the Christmas Spirit with Eclipse Chorus’ 15th annual Christmas concert. This year, Eclipse dips into the collective memory bank and pulls out some memorable songs. Mom’s favourite song, that first Christmas in the big city, that special movie with the family around the tube – these are some of the memories that Christmas songs can stir up. Classic Eclipse favourites like Angels We Have Heard On High, new arrangements of old classics like Here We Come A-Wassailing, and a memorable arrangement of O Holy Night by Angie Tysseland are included in the program. With many unique arrangements by our talented Roy and Wes, you’re in for a spirit-warming evening.
Special guest percussionist Darrell Bueckert joins the red-hot Eclipse band of Wes Froese (piano), Bruce Wilkinson (bass), Byron Olsen (guitar), and Don Tatchell (drums).
Join us as we share some memories of Christmases past, as well as create some exciting new ones!

Capture Love in Song
Eclipse Chorus Presents Its 15th Annual Spring Show
“If you could capture love, give it shape and let it breathe, it would be a song for you and me”.
On Saturday, May 12, Eclipse Chorus breathes life into these lyrics from an original composition by our own Wes Froese and former chorus member Pam Haidenger-Bains. Our evening spans the arc of romantic love from the blossoming stage (I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You) to relationship challenges (The Things We Do for Love) to broken hearts (Breaking Up is Hard to Do). Also blended into this sentimental journey is the joy and importance of brotherly love, love of a higher power and care for the welfare of the wider world through an energetic mix of popular music and the gospel genre (Heal The World, Oh Happy Day).
You’ll hear selections from The Great American Song Book to Bob Dylan, the Everly Brothers, the Eagles, Michael Buble and more.
A spirited, thoughtful and fun-filled stroll down the memory lane of love awaits. Let Eclipse “Put a Little Love in Your Heart”. Come join us!!
