Inductee

London is famous across Canada and known around the world for the excellence of its choral music. In announcing the inductees for the London music hall of fame, the Jack Richardson Music Awards steering committee is honoured that the Amabile Choirs of London, Canada have accepted induction into the hall as its first choir. World-class Amabile makes London musical excellence heard around the world. We are delighted to honour Amabile in its 25th anniversary season. Amabile Choirs of London, Canada is an educational program welcoming children, youth and adults who wish to develop their musical talents as part of a vibrant, award-winning choral organization. (Amabile is pronounced Ah-MAH-bee-lay). Active in London, Ontario since 1985, there about 300 Amabile choristers ranging from ages 8 to adult. Together they form a total of eight auditioned choirs (four male choirs and four female ones) plus two ensembles. The Amabile Youth Singers (AYS) was the first choir, a choir for young women, and it was co-founded by Brenda Zadorsky and John Barron in 1985. Brenda continues to conduct the AYS, Prima and the Amabile Young Women’s Ensemble. The Junior Amabile Singers (JAS) was founded in 1989 for younger girls. Today, the JAS and its training choir, Da Capo, are under the direction of Jacquelyn Norman and Wendy Landon. The Amabile Boys and Men’s Choirs, directed by Dr. Carol Beynon and Ken Fleet, were founded in 1990 to provide musical experiences of the highest level for male singers in South Western Ontario. Together, the continuum and depth that Amabile offers is unparalleled by any other choral organization in Canada and Amabile has achieved acclaim on national and world stages for its excellence in choral performance.
