1992. Dec The formation of the Ottawa Regional Baha'í Choir. It traces its roots to the mass choir that was created to perform at the Bahá'í World Congress in New York City in November of 1992. Three Ottawa Baha'is were in that choir, and they brought back with them a body of specially commissioned choral arrangements for Baha'i sacred music. They were joined by several others, eager to sing this "new music" that they had seen performed at the Congress. Over the next few years, other choir members attended choral workshops in Green Acre Baha'i School and elsewhere, further expanding the Ottawa choir's repertoire.

Members of the Ottawa Regional Bahá'í Choir have always come from both sides of the Ottawa river, from Gatineau, QC. They have been Bahá'ís and their friends, with different levels of singing experience. There are no auditions for the choir and those new to singing are encouraged to learn as they go. The membership generally has fluctuated between 10 and 16, but has been as large as 24 and is currently 20 members strong. Over the lifetime of the choir, as about 200 members have participated, choir direction has changed hands, often rotating between members. [Ottawa Community News 28 September 2017]
