Your First Visit

The warm and inviting sanctuary of the Wesley-Knox Church is the performance home of the Karen Schuessler Singers. This 135-year-old architectural gem is a splendid place to hear choral music. From the ringing power of 50 voices singing full voice to the quietest of pianissimos, its clear acoustics provide the perfect place for you to hear the Karen Schuessler Singers.

Seating in the space is like theatre-in-the-round where the choir is out toward the middle of the room, thereby creating an intimate and inclusive sense from any seat in the room. With a complete balcony, the space offers seating at different levels, as well as up behind the singers. Seating is general admission with certain areas reserved for those with season subscriptions. A map showing seating areas can be viewed here. Please feel free to call our Ticket Manager if you have any other questions at 519-455-8895.

FAQS

When should I arrive for a concert?

Ideally, we hope people are seated at least 10 minutes before the concert start time and advise arriving at least 15-20 minutes ahead of time if you wish time to peruse the information in the program.

Where can I find program information?

You will receive a program from an usher when you arrive at the venue. We will also post written program notes online a few days ahead of the concert. You will find this information on the concert page, along with other media materials that may help familiarize you with the concert program.

What if I am running late?

Because the acoustics of the venue project every sound, latecomers will be seated at the first suitable break in the concert. For the convenience of latecomers, programs and chairs will be available in the waiting area.

What do I wear?

Almost anything goes! You will see people in suits and dresses and other people in jeans and a polo shirt. “Smart casual” is a good guideline.

When do I clap?

If you are not sure, the best bet is to follow the rest of the crowd. Generally the best time to applaud is after the music has stopped, and the conductor has lowered her arm to her side.
