Canadian Celtic Choir presents... Celtic Memories



This concert will celebrate the award-winning Canadian Celtic Choir‘s 25+ years of performing for appreciative audiences in London and area, as well as, provincially, nationally and internationally.. This will be the CCC’s first full indoor public concert in over 2 years. This concert will be dedicated to Roger Jolliffe who passed away in August 2021. Roger was with the CCC for nearly 20 years as our treasurer and fine lyric tenor. Also, we will be honoring Bill Zadorsky who was our conductor from 2010 until his retirement in the spring of 2020. Bill will be featured on fiddle/violin on a few pieces, and will also guest conduct the choir.

The Canadian Celtic Choir is a London-based SATB choir that was founded in 1996 by Dan Surman, B.F.A., B.Ed, to sing and promote Celtic choral music and culture in Southwestern Ontario. Dan led the choir for 12 years from 1996 to 2008. Over the years the Canadian Celtic Choir has been recognized with several awards – Best Classical Vocal Group, London Music Awards (2008, 2009, 2010) and Most Popular Classical Choir, Forest City London Music Awards 2015. The CCC has toured internationally: Maui, Hawaii (2008); England & Scotland (2014); Canadian Maritimes (2017). The CCC has performed at: Pier 21 in Halifax (Canada Day Citizenship Ceremonies), Canada Summer Games, Windsor Celtic Festival, Goderich Celtic Roots Festival, Owen Sound Celtic Festival, Fergus Highland Games, Home County Music & Art Festival (London), Canterbury Folk Festival (Ingersoll), Fieldcote Summer Music Series (Ancaster), Lighthouse Theatre (Port Dover), the opening of the Wolf Performance Hall (London, Ontario), and several times with Orchestra London Canada.
