Over the years, the choir has benefited under the inspired direction of Irla Stewart, Mary Hearn, Kathleen King Martin and currently, Linda Street. The Choristers have had, as well, the good fortune to be accompanied by many fine musicians, including our current accompanist, Deborah Bailey.
In 1993 and again in 1998, Choristers were privileged to have composer-arranger Don Besig conduct two choral workshops in Goderich. Following his first visit, Don, assisted by Nancy Price, composed and dedicated a song for the Choristers – “Say It With A Song” – which has since become the Choristers’ signature piece. Both Nancy Price and the Robert Wood Choir from Welland attended the 1998 workshop.
In 2010, the Choristers hosted a choral workshop with Prof. Victoria Meredith of Western University, and another, more recently, with Prof. Rachel Rensink-Hoff. Members from at least 12 other local choirs attended these workshops.
