Waterloo Regional Police Chorus sings in Elmira

by Brent Bloch

ELMIRA - The songs of the Waterloo Regional Police Male Chorus will once again delight the autumn airs of Elmira as the choir visits St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in honour of the congregation’s 150th anniversary. 

The concert will be held on Sept. 24th at 7:30pm it will be open to the public, with $12 tickets available at the door.

The Police Chorus was formed in November 1973, and over the years has distinguished itself as a group that provides excellent entertainment and quality music.

Last June, the group sang the national anthem at the Toronto Argonaut football game, and it will hopefully bring the Blue Jays luck as the Chorus will sing the national anthems before the Jays take on the New York Yankees on Sept. 27.

The Chorus, directed by Kimberly Nikkel and accompanied by Sheila Wallace, is also in demand beyond Waterloo Region. Since its inception, the group has accepted invitations to sing from sea to sea across Canada, and all over the United States.

During two tours of England, Scotland, and Wales, the Chorus performed to sold-out audiences at impressive locations such as Westminster Abbey, York Minster, and Lincoln Cathedral.

The group’s repertoire includes selections from a wide range of music that appeal to music lovers of any age:  traditional spirituals, hymns, Canadian folk and pop songs, Broadway standards, and movie tunes. The Chorus also has released several CDs; the most recent recording being its sixth, We Sing Again.

Elmira resident and choir member, Ron Wagner, will be doing double duty at the Chorus’s upcoming concert at St. Paul’s as he will be singing with the group and celebrating with his own congregation.

The concert at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, at the corner of Centre and Mill Streets in Elmira, will be one of several events the congregation  has organized to commemorate its sesquicentennial anniversary.  St. Paul’s has already hosted a Victorian Tea, and it will be on the itinerary as part of Waterloo Region’s Doors Open event on September 18th.  The festivities will wrap up with a banquet and special worship service on the second last weekend in October.

Tickets for the concert are $10.00 per person in advance and are available by contacting the St. Paul’s Lutheran Church office at 519-669-2593, or Brent Bloch at 519-669-3812.  Tickets will also be available for $12.00 at the door.
