The Rainbow Chorus is a charitable, non-profit organization of amateur non-auditioned choral singers. We join together in song and celebrate the diversity of our community.
Our members (gay, lesbian, bi, trans and straight) come from small towns throughout South Western Ontario.
The Rainbow Chorus depends on financial support from its members, sponsors and communities.

20th Anniversary Fundraiser
The RCWW has a donor who will match any donation from $20-$60 over the next 60 days (April 17-June16). This is an unprecedented opportunity for the chorus to raise funds. These donations could help us fund: getting a new piece of music commissioned for our 20th anniversary, purchasing a new keyboard which we would use when we take our performances on the road, obtaining a vocal coach to work with members on an individual basis, a visioning retreat for the chorus and many other activities which are on our wish list.
Be a part of this exciting new adventure and help us achieve some of our dreams. As little as $2.50 per week for 8 weeks or as much as $1.00 a day for 60 days would be a big start to this 20th Anniversary Fundraiser.Donate online thru PayPal or send a cheque to the chorus address or contact any RCWW member.
Fresh on the heels of successful participation at the Kiwanis Music Festival and Guelph’s first Gay/Straight Alliance High School coalition, the Rainbow Chorus of Waterloo-Wellington aims to close its busiest year ever with their highly anticipated annual spring concert Saturday May 25, 8pm at Harcourt United Church.
Songs in the Key of Sea features a variety of songs that speak and reflect of water as a force whether in the form of river, rain, or sea and the many ways in which our lives are shaped and affected by it. The program covers a wide range of genres, from folk standards such as Feller From Fortune and Northwest Passage, to the popular sounds of River of Dreams and Proud Mary.
A second performance of this program takes place at Knox Presbyterian in Waterloo, Sunday June 2 – which happens to be the 30 year anniversary of the death of Stan Rogers, the great Canadian folk legend who died so tragically in 1983.
Audiences have come to appreciate the fresh, energetic approach and diversity in concert programming and under its present Music Director Annetta Whetham, the Rainbow Chorus continues to combine the contemplative along with comedic in a most colourful, entertaining way.
Advance tickets for either performance are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors/students and are available at Pretty Chic on Quebec St, Guelph Artisans ‘ at the Quebec St Mall, Out on the Shelf (OOTS), in Guelph, Opus 11 in Kitchener, from members or through PayPal on the Rainbow Chorus website at www.rainbowchorus.ca
