In The Beginning...

In the early 1970's, Town Hall 1873 was destined for destruction. Grace Hastings, a respected music educator, choral director and local arts/music 'activist',  was one of a group of concerned citizens who successfully worked together to save Town Hall 1873.

During restoration in the 1970s, tickets and programs from a 1913 performance of H.M.S. Pinafore were unearthed and the Town Hall Board of Directors decided to stage this musical once again as a tribute. The performance was staged in 1976.

Grace, a member of the Town Hall board, retired music teacher and consultant with the Ontario County Board of Education, was their obvious choice for director. The Town Hall was packed to the rafters for every performance with people being turned away at the door. It was Grace's love of music and dedication which was at the core of the newly formed Scugog Choral Society.  It has been only in recent years that the group has adopted the shortened and updated SCS Musicals moniker, but always cherish our beginnings as a community choral group of friends.

"So much fun. So many laughs. So much accomplished. So many beautiful sounds." --Grace Hastings, Founder of Scugog Choral Society, My Journey to the Millennium
