We are proud to have competed and medaled in the World Choir Games 2012. We were thrilled to have performed Messiah at the Lincoln Center, NYC on December 1, 2013. Tempus performs under the direction of Brian L. Turnbull and is accompanied by Jane Wamsley.
Our membership is made up of singers from all walks of life with many from the professional community. They come to Tempus to have fun producing choral music of the highest standard. New members are welcome during the fall and at selected times during the year arranged with the Director of Membership.
Our Tempus4Us Children's Choir and Tempus Jazz Choir was founded in 2015 as part of a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Both choirs perform at Tempus concerts.
