The Mount Royal Youth Choir is a mixed chorus comprised of youth from age 13 to 19 years, performing a wide variety of challenging repertoire. Recognized across Canada for its outstanding performances at national choral and music education conferences, the choir has also earned critical acclaim during tours of Canada, Great Britain, Europe, Australia & Mexico.
No previous singing experience is required.
The purpose of the audition interview is to give us a chance to hear your voice and reserve your spot in the choir. Come prepared to sing a familiar song (O Canada, Happy Birthday, a well-known hymn, tune, etc.) and to talk about music; other musical activities, the types of music you like, and your musical goals. We love to explore and find opportunities for our members to share their particular talents and to help shape the group and the music we select for performances.
To make an appointment please call 403.440.6832 or e-mail the Program Coordinator, Choral Programs (subject line “Youth Choir audition interview request”).
