Jr. Choir rehearses Monday at 7:35am and has pullout sessions for each Gr. 6 pod against one PE block in the timetable
This ensemble is for Grade 6 students.
All students are welcome, and you may join at any time during the school year (preferably at the beginning of a new term)
We explore a variety of vocal styles: a cappella, traditional concert choir, vocal jazz, ethnic, and even pop tunes.
Sr. Choir rehearses Thursday at 7:35am and has pullout sessions for each Gr. 7/8 pod against one PE block in the timetable
This ensemble is for Grade 7 and 8 students.
All students are welcome to join at any time during the school year, and we also explore a variety of vocal styles. More emphasis is placed on technique and skill at the senior levels.
The Senior Choir performs frequently throughout the year; the Remembrance Day ceremony in November is our first concert performance.
Musical Theatre is taught by Ms. Mackenzie and rehearses January to June
This ensemble is for students who want to act and dance along with their singing! In January, any student wishing to be part of our Musical (Aladdin jr.) must register in this group. This is where all our songs for the show will be perfected. All students in Show Choir are automatically part of the musical. If you wish to audition for a larger role, you may do so separately. As I've said many times, the chorus is the most important part of any show, they are the key that brings the audience into the magical world we create onstage. No part is considered "unimportant" and a students grade in this course is not based on the size of their role!
Vocal Jazz, "Man" Choir, Tour Choir, Grad Choir
These additional ensembles will be comprised of students from all grades and be shorter in duration. There will be a Jazz Speakeasy night in March in which our vocal jazz pieces will be featured, and in January a small group of choir students travel to our elementary feeder schools to perform. In December some students will create a carolling group and perform in Tillicum Mall, Grad Choir usually performs a special "going away" piece for our departing Grade 8 students in June.
