The Greater Montreal Chorus was created through the merger of the Montreal Chorus and the South Shore Chorus. Both groups had been active in barbershop singing since the 1950s and had received their charters from Sweet Adelines International in June of 1966. In the mid-1970s the South Shore group found themselves with a director, Jean Woods, but no practice hall and few members while Montreal had a hall but no director; the solution was a mutually beneficial joining of forces. Today, the Greater Montreal Chorus has 30 plus members ranging from the age of 21 to 85. We are rehearsing Monday nights at 7:30 at our rehearsal hall in Westmount Baptist Church.
