EnChor East is a four-voiced (SATB) community choir of 50+ voices, drawing members from the Halifax, Bedford and Dartmouth areas. EnChor East meets Tuesday evenings at Bedford Baptist Church (158 Rocky Lake Drive in Bedford) from September to May.

The group has built a respected reputation supported by their appreciative audiences since 1982. The choir rehearses weekly to present a varied repertoire of classical, contemporary and folk pieces, typically over three concerts per season. These are traditionally performed at Christmas, mid-winter, and a spring season finale.

New Choral Singers Needed

The group is always keen to welcome new members to our musical family. If you have any previous choral experience and are interested in singing with us, please contact our president Leslie Stephen or the Choir email for more information. Our choir is fun, friendly and musically rewarding!
