Come All Ye is a five day singing adventure at the edge of North America.

Our next Come All Ye is October 1-6, 2023. It will be located at Fishers’ Loft in Port Rexton, Newfoundland and Labrador.


Come All Ye is about having fun and making beautiful sounds together – nurturing a reconnection to ourselves and meeting like-minded people.

Come excited to sing and leave the rest in the hands of our expert facilitators. You will feel energized and uplifted. The experience always includes a wide range of singers, from beginners to experienced. Everyone is welcome and no previous singing experience is required.

While singing is central to your experience more than half of each day is yours to explore and enjoy.

Get outside and breathe in our natural, wild beauty. Roam the laneways of historic towns, such as Trinity, that date back to the 16th century. And take advantage of being on the doorstep of the award-winning Skerwink Trail.

A truly profound experience.”

Come All Ye 2023

What To Expect

Our home base for this unique experience is the spectacular Fishers’ Loft in Port Rexton, NL. Check out their trip advisor reviews here. It is an easy three-hour drive from the capital city of St. John’s.

Fishers’ Loft’s storied cuisine is another layer of your experience. Meals are shaped by the availability of local produce, wild seafood, as well as berries and mushrooms from surrounding meadows and forests.



Your adventure kicks off with a reception and dinner. It’s a great way for everyone, including partners/spouses, to begin getting acquainted.

Each day begins with gentle yoga (optional). Singing sessions are planned for two hours in the mornings and late afternoons. Together you will learn a varied group of songs, including popular, folk, show tunes, spirituals, etc. You will surprise yourself with how quickly you learn and how much you enjoy doing it!

On the last day, we travel together to Bonavista. The afternoon includes a tour of this historic town, free time, and a dress rehearsal in the Garrick Theatre. In the evening you will share your songs in a concert for an enthusiastic local audience.

“The best week of my life.”

The singing program is under the direction of Dr. Douglas Dunsmore.

Since coming to Newfoundland in 1979, Douglas Dunsmore has worked extensively at Memorial University of Newfoundland’s School of Music where he served as director of choral activities while assuming other leadership positions in national organizations. His credits include the founding of the Philharmonic Choir of the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra, prize-winning performances in CBC national radio choral competitions, a long time mentorship role as founding co-artistic director of Festival 500 and an impressive number of successful choral graduates from Memorial University. In May of 2017 he was inducted into the Arts NL Hall of Honour, an award that recognizes a person, group, or organization that has made a distinguished lifetime contribution to the cultural life of Newfoundland and Labrador. Dr. Dunsmore was recently appointed to the Order of Canada (2022) for his leadership as a choral conductor and music educator, and for his significant contributions to prominent provincial and national music organizations. Always in demand as guest conductor, clinician and/or adjudicator, Dr. Dunsmore has maintained a busy outreach schedule, working at various times throughout the length and breadth of Canada. Since his retirement from Memorial (spring 2013) Dr. Dunsmore was the first Director of the university’s Bruneau Centre for Excellence in Choral Music. He is currently director of choral music at Gower United Church in St. John’s and Director of the Anchormen Barbershop Chorus in St. John’s.
