Sadly, we have decided to cancel our annual Community Sing-Along on Sunday January 3rd because of the winter storm currently raging across Nova Scotia.Â We may reschedule it at a later time this year.
We’re pleased to announce the cast of our Fall show, Hansel and Gretel:
Hansel: Signa Love
Gretel: Mary-Claire Sanderson
Mother/Witch: Marcia Swanston
Father: Andrew Tees
Sand Fairy:Â Claire Jaworski
Dew Fairy: Amy Smith
We welcome back Toronto baritone Andrew Tees and young Lunenburg soprano Claire Jaworski, both of whom have sung with us many times.Â Making their debuts with MCO this fall are distinguished Canadian mezzo soprano Marcia Swanston, Acadia graduate Signa Love, Dalhousie student Mary-Claire Sanderson, from New Brunswick and young Lunenburg soprano Amy Smith.
The Music Director will be Tara Scott, returning to MCO after the birth of her first child this June!
With great audiences in Yarmouth and Annapolis Royal, and full houses in Shelburne and Lunenburg, MCO’s first Carmen was a smash success! We’ll have more photos from our production from Carmen up soon, but here are a few from the Shelburne show.
Thanks to all who made this possible!

We’d like to thank everyone who made our Mad Hatter’s Tea Party on March 1st our most successful fundraiser ever!
Our special judges were Catherine and David, Heather Brill’s children, and they picked the following two winners:
Shelah Allen won for the most beautiful hat
David picked Kay’s fabulous creation as the Funniest Hat.
And here’s a quintet of Ernsts in their chapeaux:Â from left to right, Elijah, John, Joshua, Peter and Eva, wearing the singing chicken.
