OCC Training Choir

In keeping with the Ottawa Children’s Choir's vision and mission of promoting the joy of singing and the advancement of children’s musical education, our new Training Choir will provide early choral experience to 6- and 7-year-old children. This age-appropriate program will provide younger children with a foundation in music theory and solfege, and exposure to a variety of musical styles and languages. The rich and engaging environment will allow them to explore and develop new skills and connect with their peers, and will start them on the path to a lifetime of musical enjoyment, appreciation and achievement.

Weekly rehearsals will introduce children to essential choral/music skills, while building self-expression, creativity and confidence. Exploring musical concepts using entertaining and developmentally-appropriate activities will involve movement and singing. The Choir will be directed by an OCC conductor, with an accompanist.

The Choir will rehearse weekly, Wednesdays from 4:30 to 5:15 p.m., at St. Joseph's Parish, 174 Wilbrod Street.

Registration fee: $450
