Top 10 Reasons to Join Eclipse Chorus


  1.  It’s fun!  Where else do you get to sing a variety of pop, rock, soul, swing, jazz and gospel live in front of an audience, with a band?
  2. Singing just makes you feel good.  It releases endorphins, the “happy” chemical for your brain.
  3. You make a great bunch of new friends.   And the more you get involved, the closer you become with those friends.
  4. We work hard at giving you the tools you need to succeed at learning your music.   From section-specific rehearsal tracks to a supportive learning environment, we try to make it as easy as possible.
  5. You are part of the larger community.   Our mission is to promote choral singing as an arts form.   An interesting arts form.   A feel-good arts form.  Eclipse is a registered Canadian charity.
  6. Music is good for the brain.   It has been suggested that “…music training does for brain what exercise does for body fitness“.  It makes you smarter and improves certain parts of your memory.   (Now where did I put my keys?)
  7. It builds teamwork skills.  Canadian astronaut Julie Payette credits her years in a choir as helping her be part of the space team.
  8. Your friends and family get to to see you doing something joyful.  The comment we hear over and over again is that we seem to be having so much fun on stage.
  9. You have a say.   Eclipse is owned by its members.  It is managed by a board of directors elected from its members.   Can’t get much more democratic than that.
  10. It is time in the week that is just for you, away from all the pressures of whatever else might be bothering you.   A time to take a deep breath, release yourself, and immerse yourself in sound.   Now what could be better than that?
