REHEARSALS When we can return
"Being a member of the BFS Choir since it was organized has been a very rewarding experience for me. I enjoy the music we perform from pop, musicals, British and Canadian songs to classical pieces including Verdi's Requiem and Handel’s Messiah. We have enjoyed leadership from various music directors. Robert Hennig is our director at present and with his vision and the support of our amazing Board of Directors the choir has increased in membership and we have had the opportunity to sing in many places including Vienna, Salzburg, Prague , Rome , Florence , New York, Edinburgh and Paris. I look forward to many more years singing with the BFS choir and to the places we will visit in the future. Thank you To Robert our music director, Conrad our pianist and to our board members, for together they have worked very hard to make The' Brampton Festival Singers' an amazing choir to be a part of." Bev Le Drew.
Thank you so much for a lovely concert last night. I loved the variety of music you choose for us. The venue and organ were awesome. The musicians really added a lot to the concert. Conrad’s organ solos were wonderful. Ave Maria made me cry - a very moving performance.
This was a very wonderful way to start the Christmas holiday. I really appreciate all you do to make the BFS choir a very enjoyable, enriching experience. Thank you once again!” Name supplied

INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC QUOTES
Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.
Where words fail, music speaks.
-Hans Christian Andersen
