About the Chapel Choir:
The University of King’s College Chapel Choir is gaining a reputation under director Paul Halley as one of Canada’s leading vocal ensembles and its performances are frequently broadcast nationally on CBC Radio 2. The choir comprises 24 choristers from the King’s College and Dalhousie University communities in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The choir’s primary function is to sing at the weekly services in the King’s College Chapel, as well as other major services throughout the academic year. The choir is well-known for its annual King’s at the Cathedral concert series and also includes touring and recording among its activities. The choir’s CD, Let Us Keep the Feast: Music for the Church Year, was released in December 2013 to launch the university’s 225th anniversary year.
