If you've got a big event coming up and you'd like to dazzle your guests with some world-class Canadian performing excellence, why not hire Canadian Showtime Chorus? We have lots of experience performing on a big stage – at international competitions, on Capital Hill for Canada Day, at the RCMP Musical Ride, and dozens of other venues in and around Ottawa.

We regularly stage a show at Centrepointe Theatre in Nepean - this is where you can really see the variety of music that we perform. We have performed on Dutch National day for the Dutch Embassy in Ottawa - for this function we learned and sang the Dutch National Anthem in Dutch. We've also performed at special community events including Christmas on Parliament Hill and the RCMP Musical Ride. We have competed in Syracuse, Las Vegas, Indianapolis and Nashville. The Chorus also presents Community Performances in smaller venues in and around the Ottawa area.
We perform a capella harmony in a variety of music styles - contemporary, gospel, Celtic, country, jazz and Broadway as well as traditional barbershop. We also offer special renditions of our Canadian anthem. Many of our songs are choreographed and are complemented by exciting stage costumes and dialogue.
Ideally, our chorus performs as a large group with most of its members on stage. However, we have several quartets who perform as well. Please check the Our Quartets link for more information about them.
Ideally, we would like a stage area large enough (approximately 45ft x 30ft) with sufficient ceiling height for a 4 level set of risers (steps) on which 100 singers can perform. A private area for singers to warm up and leave their personal belongings is always welcome. A sound system in larger venues is recommended - we would like your audience to get the full impact of 100 voices singing as one in harmony.
Rehearsals are Tuesdays at 7:30 pm at the Nepean Creative Arts Centre, 35 Stafford Road, Ottawa. Please contact our Public Relations Coordinator at to arrange a visit to preview our performance.
Because we are a competing chorus with many performances scheduled in any given year, and because of the complications to ensure 100 singers are available on any given date, sooner is always better. Ideally, we would like at least six months but will give consideration to all bookings.
It really depends on the nature and duration of the engagement. A longer performance or one located out of town may cost more.
