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!

Returning Singer | Daniel Wilkenfeld

It is always a collective, heartfelt feeling when an alumni or a Singer who had to take a bit of a hiatus, returns. We were thrilled to have 2 returning Singers join us when Fall rehearsals began!

We caught up with one of them, Daniel Wilkenfeld, who last shared his wonderful voice and stage presence with all of us in 2015, to know what he’s been up to!

𝐋𝐓𝐒: What has it been like to return to The Lyric Theatre Singers, in general and in a virtual capacity.

𝐃𝐖: “Coming back to Lyric has been everything I’d hoped it would be and more! I’m so excited to get to sing again with a group of very talented people and be led by the incomparable Bob Bachelor. Virtual zoom rehearsals are never the same as in person, and learning this new medium presents its own challenges, but seeing all the familiar faces leaves me with the same fuzzy feeling as when I was in the same room as them. So excited to see the result of this newest project!”

𝐋𝐓𝐒: What have you been up to since we last saw you in a Lyric concert?

𝐃𝐖: “Much has happened since I was last part of The Lyric Theatre Singers, not the least of which was graduating from Optometry School and finally becoming a professional. Not being in school means more time for show choir practice! I’ve done a few other full book musicals with WISTA and Contact Theatre as well, such as The Addams Family, Bonnie and Clyde, Shrek the Musical, Bye Bye Birdie, among others. I always find a way to keep busy doing what I love: performing!”

Welcome back, Daniel! Don’t miss him in 𝐂𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐥𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐂𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐦𝐚𝐬 – 𝐅𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐎𝐮𝐫 𝐇𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐬! A virtual event coming to you via Facebook and YouTube Live December. 17-18-19 2020.

The Lyric Theatre

If you’ve been to a Lyric Theatre Singers’ Christmas concert, you’ve probably seen the beautiful corsages the Singers wear. Directors, performers and musicians proudly pin them over their hearts before each performance.

Bob Bachelor thought that singing carols from home should not put an end to this tradition. Production team member and Soprano, Shy Shalev, recently (safely) distributed these to the performers as they got ready to film their segments for the virtual concert. Shy got help from Muriel Bernard Browman (Soprano) and Shauna Nugent Reimer (Alto). We are so grateful to them!

These unique corsages have been in the “Lyric Family” for 7 years and have been preserved and handled with care. These accessories were all handmade by alumni Angela Murphy (Ange J Murphy). We are also grateful to her, as a project she executed so beautifully is still a very important part of our concerts today.
❤️ 💚
