About Ottawa Children's Choir
The Ottawa Children's Choir exists to enrich artistically the lives of our choristers, families and the community. We offer an instructional music program emphasizing musicianship and vocal training through choral music experience.
We are five ensembles:
* Training Choir (NEW this fall!)
* The Viva Choir, at a beginner level;
* The Concert Choir, an intermediate group;
* The Chamber Choir, singing an advanced repertoire;
* Boys' Choir, for boys whose voice may or may not have changed.
Children have the opportunity to experience their own progress as they master music with greater vocal facility and deeper musical understanding.
Choristers perform regularly within the National Capital Region, studying and singing the finest repertoire available, with an emphasis on Canadian compositions.
