The Holy Heart of Mary Alumnae Choir, directed by Dr. Valerie Long, was formed in 1999 as part of the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the opening of the school. Holy Heart of Mary Regional High School was an all female Catholic school, the largest in eastern Canada.
HHMAC is a non-auditioned choir, and as such, the only prerequisite is that the members are all former students of Holy Heart. We have grown from thirty members in 1999 to the current membership nearing 100. The choir's mandate is reflective of the history of the school, where the sisters always strived to enhance the joy of music, to sense it, to teach it, to perform it. Through benefit performances and guest appearances, this renewed joy is evident in the choir members and the musical caliber of the choir is very high.
