Stella’s Circle Inclusion Choir

The Stella’s Circle Inclusion Choir was founded in 2007 as a volunteer project of Stella’s Circle. The Choir of Stella’s Circle participants, staff and volunteers come together weekly for rehearsal and to make a joyful noise. There are no ‘tryouts’ or required number of rehearsals or performances to attend. Instead the emphasis is on the joy and fun of singing.

The Inclusion philosophy is that the choir is a place of acceptance and an opportunity to be a part of something bigger; it increases social connections for people and can be a great first step to engaging in other community activities. The group is empowered by sharing messages of social justice with audiences. The Choir performs at a variety of conferences and events and has performed at least 70 times, including for Johnny Reid!
