Maintaining balance in the development of the child as a musician, performer and responsible citizen is an important part of the Choir’s philosophy. The Calgary Children’s Choir teaches the highest quality repertoire to the highest standard while promoting this development.
The discipline of regular practice, formal choir presentations, international tours and involvement in community events are the means by which this balanced development is pursued.
A sense of community, fellowship and caring for one another has always been the hallmark of the Calgary Children’s Choir. This is in abundant evidence during choir camps and on tours.
Throughout the year choir members have one to two regular weekly rehearsals and occasional additional rehearsals as directed. The program also consists of special rehearsals with a variety of local clinicians, and special camps, workshops and tours.
Established in 1987, he Calgary Children’s Choir has built an international reputation of excellence and fostered a lifelong love of music in hundreds of young people. Members receive outstanding training in choral technique and musical theory, perform several times a year, and build lasting relationships. The Calgary Children’s Choir promotes an environment of family and community through our mentoring programs, allowing each child to shine and grow vocally in a safe, supportive environment.
