Cantores Celestes

Rebecca (Becky) Burrill is a native “Maritimer” who returned in 2019 to Saint John after 30 years residency in USA. She began studying piano at age 7 and continued for about 10 years. Her experience is 25 years of playing in a church setting for congregational singing and accompanying various vocalists and instrumentalists. We are thrilled she has been our accompanist since 2022 when we resumed rehearsals.

The Saint John Men's Chorus is a TTBB choir formed in 2005. It was founded and directed by David Mitchell, who developed the unique sound of the group and set the base for its continued evolution over the years. Through the long term commitment of many members current and since retired, it has been a fixture in the Saint John music scene. Its eclectic performances have addressed a wide variety of tastes in the Maritime community and has attracted the participation of many local performers and composers. Since 2019, it is under the direction of Kelly Galbraith. Given the adverse trends in musical performance since the start of COVID, it is through the enthusiasm of the Director, Kelly Galbraith and the dedication of its members that they are once again in a position to offer novel and innovative compositions to the patrons of music. The Saint John Men's Chorus looks forward to welcoming  new members.
