Welcome to the website of the Coastal Sounds Choir Association, a non profit choral organization based in Conception Bay South, Newfoundland and Labrador.

The mission of the Coastal Sounds Choir Association is to promote and advocate for singing and the musical arts in Conception Bay South and surrounding areas, specifically with the intent to offer as many varying choral singing opportunities as possible. The CSCA truly believes that everyone is capable of singing and that sharing song with others is good for the body, mind and soul.  We hope you will consider joining one (or more) of our many projects and help us to continue to grow and get all of CBS singing!

 FALL REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

The CSCA is accepting new members for two of our projects!

The Coastal Sounds Community Choir is a three part mixed choir for everyone. It is an un-auditioned choir that welcomes anyone regardless of musical background and experience. It’s a perfect choir for anyone who always thought they couldn’t sing and are willing to be shown just how easy and fun it can be. The first rehearsal of the season will be on Wednesday, September 14th, 7:30 PM at Holy Spirit High School in CBS. If you’re interested in joining, just come by! We’re accepting new members until September 28th.

The 4th Annual Christmas Cantata Project is accepting registrations for this year’s Cantata. It has become a tradition to perform a Christmas related work every year with choir and orchestra and this year will continue that tradition. Interested singers must be able to make 3 out of 4 Saturday rehearsals in the fall and will be given learning materials to aid in home study. For more information, please click here.

If you have questions about any of our projects, please drop us a line.

Today, the Aurora Women's Choir wraps up a jam-packed and eventful trip to Ottawa for the Unisong Choral Festival!

The week was filled with rehearsals, performances and sightseeing adventures. Highlights included a fabulous concert with Atlantic Voices at Orleans United Church, singing in the gorgeous acoustics of city hall, having a tour of Parliament Hill, singing for the Canada Day flag raising on the hill, singing for the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Beaumont Hamel at the Canadian War Museum, a spectacular fireworks show (which followed an equally spectacular thunder and lightning display) and of course our final concert at Dominion-Chalmers United Church.

Wonderful to meet singers and conductors from all over and a pleasure to sing for director Robert Cooper. Today we relax with a cruise on the canal and one last meal together before flying home. What a formative experience for us as a choir, and joy to share this time together. We sincerely thank all the singers and everyone who supported our efforts! Photo album to come soon!
