About The Achill Choral Society
They began as a community choir in 1982, drawing our members from an area north-west of Toronto. They gather each Wednesday evening at St. John’s Anglican Church (Highway 9, 6 km east of Orangeville) to rehearse their repertoire for the coming season’s concerts. The name is derived from the tiny hamlet of Achill, near Hockley in Adjala Township. Achill was settled in the early 1800’s by immigrants from Achill Island, off the west coast of Ireland. Achill is Gaelic for eagle.
