The Halifax Camerata Singers is Atlantic Canada’s premier chamber choir. Founded in 1986 by Artistic Director Jeff Joudrey, the Nova Scotia ensemble has distinguished itself by performing exciting choral repertoire that covers all periods and styles, with special attention to Canadian music.

Members of the Halifax Camerata Singers come from many communities for the opportunity to perform demanding choral repertoire. The choir often appears in collaboration with chamber ensembles, Symphony Nova Scotia and other musicians, and since 2001 has been the core choir of the Symphony Nova Scotia Chorus. The ensemble performs in regional concert series such as Music at the Three Churches, Musique Royale, Dartmouth Community Concert Series, and Prince Edward Island’s prestigious Indian River Festival, and was invited as one of the featured choirs at an international choral festival in Edmonton in May, 2017.

The Halifax Camerata Singers organization has an active program of commissioning choral music from Canadian and international composers and is proud to encourage young singers through bursaries for the Nova Scotia Youth Choir. The not-for-profit society is managed by a volunteer board of directors. Funding comes from performances, donations and fundraising, with supporting grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, Arts Nova Scotia, Halifax Regional Municipality,  and the Lloyd Carr-Harris Foundation.
