AN EXCEPTIONAL OPPORTUNITY!
The Canadian Chamber Choir includes singers, conductors, composers, educators, choreographers and scholars of Canadian choral music. In one package, this group is able to address a number of our curriculum goals. This mini conference with the Canadian Chamber Choir will explore a number of music curriculum areas: vocal technique, conducting gesture, innovative programming including collaborations with indigenous musicians, choral arranging and composition, Canadian repertoire and more. 
Under the visionary leadership of Julia Davids, the choir convenes in a different region of Canada at least twice a year, offering concerts and mentoring choral practitioners of all ages and stages.
Wherever the Canadian Chamber Choir performs, they are met with praise for their expressive, committed interpretations, and their warm enthusiasm for sharing their gifts in the community. Concerts feature world premieres on every tour, workshops draw singers at any ability-level into vibrant music making, and masterclasses offer conductors and composers hands-on experience with one of the finest choirs on the continent.
