Ottawa McGill Alumni Choir (OMAC)

The Ottawa McGill Alumni Choir formed in 2005, and has been under the leadership of Choir Director Joanne “Jodi” Tait (BMus'94) since 2006.  Ellen Fry has accompanied the choir on piano since 2009. 

OMAC prepares a diverse repertoire of music, ranging from classical to spiritual to pop, with the overall goal of providing a relaxed and fun musical experience for its members. 

The Choir holds twice yearly concerts in December and June for friends and family, and has also performed for the McGill Annual General Meeting, at charity events, in particular for the local “Poets’ Pathway” initiative, in seniors’ residences and for the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). 

At the start of each session OMAC opens its doors to new members, including Ottawa-based McGill Alumni as well as their family and friends.  All ages are welcome and musical experience is not required to join – just a passion for singing!
