Extension Chords

The Extension Chords are a support group that includes spouses, partners and family members of the men of the Chorus. They lend a helping hand in many ways, which allows the men to focus on singing and performing for the community. One Extension Chord represents them on the Chorus’s Management Team. This group is a highly valued part of the Upper Canada Chordsmen organization. All spouses, partners and family members are invited to become an Extension Chord.

The Extension Chords support the Chorus by

  • being greeters and ticket-takers at shows
  • raising funds through half-time refreshment sales
  • catering lunch/dinner breaks for the singers at performances
  • arranging for private caterers for the Afterglows
  • assisting with fundraising events such as garage sales
  • emceeing
  • attending performances as part of the audience
  • promoting the chorus
