About the Choirs
Whether you’re shy and nervous, or ready to leap out onto the stage, there is a place for you in the 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
Join us for a fun-filled concert fundraiser for the David Suzuki Foundation. We will be singing songs about the environment and keeping our planet green. All proceeds donated to the David Suzuki Foundation. Saturday, June 1st ~ 6:30pm at St. Andrew’s United Church, 1044 St. George’s Ave.
Concerts and Outreaches
We perform two public fundraising concerts per year for selected charities. Since the choir formed 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, and the SPCA. On top of the fundraising, 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!
If you think your child or youth would be interested in joining a purely vocal-based ensemble, just send us an email and the director will contact you shortly.
