Who We Are

Like any great piece of music, The Lyric Theatre Singers began with a single note. That note rang loud and sweet in 1990 as the start of something new—an ensemble of talents that added voices, gained speed, and grew into a full-throated expression of musical excellence that continues today.

We produce popular Broadway revues and Christmas concerts for local audiences. In rehearsal for 10 of 12 months, our singers and directors put in the time to create meaningful performances year after year, a legacy that has turned the Lyric Theatre Singers into a must-see Montreal attraction for fans of theatre, vocal harmonies, or plain ol’ entertainment.

Caught your eye? (Or your ear?) Get to know our singers, our leaders, and our history in the rest of this site. See for yourself why Montreal audiences rise to their feet time and again for the Lyric Theatre Singers, and learn how you can get involved behind the scenes or on stage as a new voice. Above all, thank you for visiting, and see you at the theatre!

The Lyric Theatre Singers dedicate Candlelight Christmas – From Our Home to Yours to dear friend and alumna Dolores Barnes.

Dolores was a performing member of the Singers in our early days and played a key role in building our audience and developing our ensemble.

When the time came for her to pursue other interests, she never completely left us. In fact, for nearly 30 years

Dolores – and her large network of friends! – attended our concerts and supported us in our many endeavours.

We will miss her straightforward, no-nonsense approach to life but mainly, we will miss her kind, generous nature and will never forget all she has done for us.

Les Lyric Theatre Singers dédient le spécial Noël aux chandelles – De nos maisons à la vôtre à une chère amie et ancienne membre du groupe, Dolores Barnes.

Dolores a fait partie des Singers à ses tout débuts, et a joué un rôle charnière dans le développement du public et l’épanouissement de l’ensemble.

Même lorsqu’est venu le temps de poursuivre d’autres intérêts, Dolores n’a jamais vraiment quitté le Lyric. En effet, pendant presque 30 ans, Dolores – et son large réseau d’amis.es! – a assisté aux concerts des Lyric Theatre Singers et nous a soutenu dans nos diverses démarches.

Sa vision franche et sans fioriture de la vie va nous manquer, en particulier sa bonté et sa grande générosité. Jamais nous n’oublierons ce qu’elle a fait pour nous.

The Lyric Theatre

Do you know Alessandro Mercurio? If you attended last year’s Candlelight Christmas concert at Loyola Chapel, you’ve probably seen him, as he sang his heart out in his very first Lyric Theatre Singers concert. He was eager to hit the stage, as were the others, for the 30th anniversary Broadway Revue when rehearsals began in early 2020. But alas, this year had different plans for us all.

Alessandro then saw his role within the Singers change, when Bob Bachelor was looking for a way to keep the Singers connected to each other and our audiences, despite social distancing and cancelled live performances. Having a background in video editing, Alessandro was just the right fit to carry out concepts which proved to be not only creative, but also captured the group’s spirit and performance level. In the Spring and Summer, we were proud to release "Together From Home", a series of 4 videos of various Broadway songs the Singers would’ve performed for you in June. (Linked below). This was perfect practice for what would come next…

The Lyric Theatre Singers felt that it wouldn’t be Christmas for them or many Montrealers, if they didn’t share some of the Holiday cheer they usually spread during their Candelight Christmas concerts. That is how our virtual concert came to be. An ambitious project which required all hands on deck and passionate energy! It’s true that many people were involved in making this happen, but we are truly grateful for Alessandro’s amazing work! From all of us at The Lyric Theatre, THANK YOU Alessandro!

Catch our last livestream! It starts in 40 minutes!

Connaissez-vous Alessandro Mercurio? Si vous avez assisté au concert Noël aux chandelles de l’année dernière à la chapelle Loyola, vous l’avez probablement vu, alors qu’il chantait de tout cœur lors de son tout premier concert avec les Lyric Theatre Singers. Il avait hâte de monter sur scène, comme les autres, pour notre 30è revue musicale Broadway, lorsque les répétitions ont commencé en 2020. Mais hélas, cette année avait des plans différents pour nous tous.

Alessandro a alors vu son rôle au sein du Lyric Theatre changer, lorsque Bob Bachelor cherchait un moyen de garder le groupe et notre public connectés, malgré la distanciation sociale et les concerts annulées. Ayant une formation en montage vidéo, Alessandro était LA personne pour réaliser des concepts qui se sont avérés très créatifs! Au printemps et en été, nous étions fiers de présenter m « Loin des yeux pres du choeur », une série de 4 vidéos de diverses chansons de Broadway, que nous aurions interprétées pour vous en juin. (Lien ci-dessous). C’était une pratique parfaite pour ce qui allait suivre …

Les Lyric Theatre Singers ont estimé que ce ne serait pas vraiment Noël pour eux, ou pour de nombreux Montréalais, s’ils ne partageaient pas la joie des Fêtes a leur manière. C’est ainsi qu’est né le concept de notre concert virtuel. Un projet ambitieux qui a nécessité un travail d’équipe important et beaucoup de passion! Il est vrai que de nombreuses personnes ont participé à la réalisation de ce projet, mais nous sommes vraiment reconnaissants pour le travail incroyable d’Alessandro! De la part de nous tous au Lyric Theatre, MERCI Alessandro!
