Whether you’re shy and nervous, or ready to leap out onto the stage, there is a place for you in A Capella Chorus. We are accepting young singers of all levels and abilities who have a keen interest in music and a commitment to learning. While building confidence through weekly rehearsals and term concerts, our young singers will learn proper vocal technique, build musical skills through teamwork, and make some great friends while reaching out to the community.
A Capella Chorus breaks into two age groups, but often performs together, en masse.
Rehearsals are held on Mondays at St. Andrew’s United Church.
1044 St. George’s Ave, North Vancouver.
CHILDREN’S CHORUS (8-12 yrs.) 4-5 pm
YOUTH CHORUS (13-17 yrs.) 5:00-6:15 pm
Concerts and Outreaches
We perform two public fundraising concerts per year for selected charities. Since the choir formed in 2009, we’ve raised funds for the Brian Wood Memorial, Education Without Borders, the Stephen Lewis Foundation, Obadiah’s Brother’s Keeper Mission + Orphanage, Save Your Skin Foundation, the SPCA, and the David Suzuki Foundation. In addition to the fundraising concerts, we also enjoy reaching out to our community by taking our chorus to various care homes, seniors’ residences and community events, whenever possible. This is especially fun during the holiday season!
Listen and Grow
We believe that all musicians, young and old, need the opportunity to hear what they are achieving over time and facilitate this by capturing critical recordings of A Capella’s concerts and key rehearsals. Our resident recording engineer turns out high-quality recordings, made available to the singers to learn from, and to share with friends and family. A child, or youth, who spends several seasons with A Capella can then listen back and hear the qualities of their voice and the overall improvement of the chorus develop over time — a valuable lesson at any age, and a keepsake of our accomplishments!
Come, help us support Keep On Swimming!
Saturday, May 24 ~ 6:00pm at St. Andrew’s United Church, 1044 St. George’s Ave.
At our last fundraiser concert, we raised $890 and 18 bags of groceries for the Harvest Project. Way to go choir, and way to go audience!
