REPSOL Choir
The Repsol Choir is the new name of this recreational choir formed in the spring of 2002. They
welcome their new director, Bruce Petherick, and are accompanied by local artist Ron Proctor at
the piano. This four-part choir performs in the spring and during the Christmas season and
takes the role of company ambassador seriously, performing at various downtown and community
venues. Highlights for the Repsol Choir include having released a full-length CD “Wreath of
Carols”, a fundraiser for the United Way of Calgary and recorded under the name of Talisman
Energy Choir, as well as the annual “Feel the Energy” mass energy choir concert. This corporate
choir continues to challenge itself with more complex pieces, mixing contemporary favourites with
classical compositions, and having a lot of fun along the way!
