Choral Canada—celebrating and championing choral music for all Canadians

Choral Canada is the national voice of the Canadian choral community, representing and uniting a network of conductors, educators, composers, administrators, choral industry leaders, and more than 40,000 choral singers from coast to coast to coast. Choral Canada advocates for Canadian choral music and musicians and encourages excellence in the choral art through our programs, including the National Youth Choir (NYC) the NYC Conducting Apprenticeship, Podium (Canada’s national choral conference and festival), and the National Competition for Canadian Amateur Choirs. By connecting choral communities with information, resources for professional development, and advocacy tools, Choral Canada inspires greater awareness of choral singing across the nation.

Our greatest strength is our membership. Please join us!

We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $154 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country. 

Nous remercions le Conseil des arts du Canada de son soutien. L’an dernier, le Conseil a investi 154 millions de dollars pour mettre de l’art dans la vie des Canadiennes et des Canadiens de tout le pays.
