HRPS Chorus

The Halton Regional Police Service Chorus (HRPC) performs for police events and fundraising concerts which benefit local charities, as well as in retirement residences and long-term care facilities in Halton Region. Membership in the Chorus is open to all members of the Halton Regional Police Service, other first responders, and members of the community.

As a member of the Ontario Association of Police Choruses (OAPC), the HRPC forms part of the massed police chorus that participates annually in the Provincial and National Police Memorial Services in Toronto and Ottawa respectively. The Chorus has also performed numerous times at various Police Memorial and Remembrance services.

The Halton Regional Police Chorus is honoured to pay tribute to all those who serve to keep our community and country safe.


In 1984, members of the Halton Regional Police Service formed a small, informal choral group to bring Christmas cheer to local senior citizens and shut ins. This initiative gave birth to a standing choral ensemble, today known as the Halton Regional Police Chorus.

The Director of the Chorus, Heide Lang, and Accompanist, Natalie Artemas-Polak, are both accomplished music educators and together, they have helped create a world-class Chorus in Halton Region.


As noted above, the Chorus performs at community and police events throughout Halton Region. Some of the police events include:

  • Swearing-In Ceremonies
  • Police Day
  • Police and Civilian Awards presentations
  • Citizen Police Academy graduations, and
  • Other events as they occur.

The Chorus also performs at:

  • Seniors’ and Long-Term Care Homes
  • Hospitals
  • Remembrance Day events
  • Weddings
  • Funerals, and
  • Other memorials
